This work describes the development of a novel approach for prescribing cardiac scan plane locations which will benefit cardiac examinations where the anatomy is abnormal (for example, in congenital anomalies). We have developed a desktop sized constrained surface controller which mimics an ultrasound transducer. This enables retrospective reformatting of a 3D localizer image to determine the desired cardiac view. The cardiac scan plane is then prospectively transferred to a 2D CINE bSSFP sequence to enable interactive assessment of cardiac function. Initial testing has established that our approach allows us to replicate standard cardiac views.
