Left atrial appendage segmentation from 3D CCTA images for occluder placement procedure

Background: Percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) closure (placement of an occluder to close the appendage) is a novel procedure for stroke prevention in patients suffering from atrial fibrillation. The closure procedure planning requires accurate …

Skeletonization method for vessel delineation of arteriovenous malformation

Cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM) presents a great health threat due to its high probability of rupture that can cause severe brain damage. Image segmentation alone is not sufficient to support AVM embolization procedure. In order to …

Robust segmentation methods with an application to aortic pulse wave velocity calculation

Skeleton calculation for automatic extraction of arteriovenous malformation in 3-D CTA images

Cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM) presents a great health threat due to its high probability of rupture which can cause severe brain damage or even death. For planing of embolization procedure of an AVM, the accurate knowledge of the location …

Generalized pixel profiling and comparative segmentation with application to arteriovenous malformation segmentation

Segmentation of brain blood vessels using projections in 3-D CT angiography images

Segmenting cerebral blood vessels is of great importance in diagnostic and clinical applications, especially in quantitative diagnostics and surgery on aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations (AVM). Segmentation of CT angiography images requires …
