In this work, a new approach for tubular structure segmentation is presented. This approach consists of two parts: (1) automatic model construction from manually segmented exemplars and (2) segmentation of structures in unknown images using these models. The segmentation problem is solved by finding an optimal path in a high-dimensional graph. The graph is designed with novel structures that permit the incorporation of prior information from the model into the optimization process and account… CONTINUE READING
