Patent Images

1. A method for synchronizing frames of imaging data with physiologic data, comprising the following steps:

  • (a) acquiring frames of imaging data representing a succession of images of a patient'"'"'s heart during a study using an imaging system;

    (b) automatically time stamping each acquired frame with respective times generated by a first clock;

    (c) automatically determining respective offsets of said first clock relative to a reference clock for each time stamp associated with said acquired frames;

    (d) storing said acquired frames and said time stamps and said offsets associated with said acquired frames;

    (e) acquiring physiologic data from said patient during said study using a hemodynamic monitoring system;

    (f) automatically time stamping data in said acquired physiologic data representing one or more predetermined cardiac events with respective times generated by a second clock;

    (g) automatically determining respective offsets of said second clock relative to said reference clock for each time stamp associated with said physiologic data; and

    (h) storing said acquired physiologic data and said time stamps and said offsets associated with said acquired physiologic data.
