Rebuilds 3D models of lesioned arteries and enabled quantitative assessment of stenoses. 3D reconstruction algorithm builds a 3D computational patient-specific model of lesioned vessel, directly from 2D projections acquired while computing invasive coronary X-ray angiography, and is relevant for immediate geometric and quantitative analysis. The 3D model result is appropriate for isogeometric analysis (IGA) of blood flow in the coronary arteries.
