In the quantitative assessment of coronary arterial dimensions from coronary cineangiograms, the contrast catheter is usually used as a scaling device, requiring the definition of the catheter contours by semi- or fully automated contour detection procedures. The image quality of the x-ray radiated catheter is dependent on the catheter material, concentration of the contrast agent in the catheter, and kilovoltage of the x-ray source. The effects of these variables on the image quality and… CONTINUE READING
