A method of coronary border identification is discussed that is based on graph searching principles and is applicable to the broad spectrum of angiographic image quality observed clinically. Cine frames from clinical coronary angiograms were optically magnified, digitized, and graded for image quality. Minimal lumen diameters, referenced to catheter size, were derived from automatically identified coronary borders and compared to those defined using quantitative coronary arteriography and to… CONTINUE READING
