The goal of the work described in this thesis is to develop and validate techniques to make 3D coronary computed tomography angiography available during percutaneous coronary interventions. The accurate alignment of the preoperative image with the intraoperative situation is very challenging due to the fast and extensive motion of the coronary arteries caused by the cardiac cycle. The main focus of our work is therefore on this alignment problem.
