The authors describe a novel algorithm, known as sequential edge linking (SEL), for the automatic definition of coronary arterial edges in cineangiograms. This algorithm is based on sequential tree searching of possible coronary artery boundary locations. Using a coronary artery phantom, the authors compared the results obtained using SEL with hand-traced boundaries. Using a magnification of 2x, the results are generally good, with the average error being 1.7% of the diameter. Actual coronary… CONTINUE READING
