In this paper, we present a method for the automated detection of lumen and media-adventitia border in sequential intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) frames. The method is based on the use of deformable models. The energy function is appropriately modified and minimized using a Hopfield neural network. Proper modifications in the definition of the bias of the(More)
The aim of this study is to describe a new method for the three-dimensional reconstruction of coronary arteries and its quantitative validation. Our approach is based on the fusion of the data provided by intravascular ultrasound images (IVUS) and biplane angiographies. A specific segmentation algorithm is used for the detection of the regions of interest(More)
The aim of this work was to evaluate a new semi-automated intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) border detection method. The method was used to identify the lumen and the external elastic membrane or the borders of stents in 80 IVUS images, randomly selected from 10 consecutive human coronary arteries. These semi-automated results were compared with observations(More)
