In this paper, we described and validated a semi-automated algorithm based on the level set method to segment the media-adventitia boundary (MAB) and lumen-intima boundary (LIB) of the carotid arteries from 3D ultrasound (3DUS) images to support the computation of carotid vessel wall volume (VWV). We incorporated local region-based and edge-based energies(More)
