Objective: Surveillance imaging of chronic aortic diseases, such as dissections, relies on obtaining and comparing cross-sectional diameter measurements at predefined aortic landmarks, over time. Due to a lack of robust tools, the orientation of the crosssectional planes is defined manually by highly trained operators. We show how manual annotations routinely collected in a clinic can be efficiently used to ease this task, despite the presence of a non-negligible interoperator variability in… 

Enhancement of aortic dissections in CT angiography: are common filters robust enough?

This work provides an evaluation of three different vessel enhancement filters, used as a preprocessing step, through both a qualitative and quantitative evaluation to obtain the correct visualization of true and false lumen separated by the dissection flap that characterizes this pathology.

Geometric modeling of aortic dissections through convolution surfaces

This work revive a successful modeling technique – convolution surfaces – to model the lumina in aortic dissections and introduces an optimization strategy based on a genetic algorithm to create the separation caused by the dissection flap.



CT-based True- and False-Lumen Segmentation in Type B Aortic Dissection Using Machine Learning.

A segmentation pipeline was used to accurately identify true and false lumina on CT angiograms of aortic dissection and can be used to obtain diameter and other morphologic parameters for surveillance and risk stratification.

Automated 3D segmentation and diameter measurement of the thoracic aorta on non-contrast enhanced CT

This fully automatic method can assess diameters in the thoracic aorta reliably even in non-ECG-gated, non-contrast CT scans and could be a promising tool to assess aortA dilatation in screening and in clinical practice.

Detection, segmentation, simulation and visualization of aortic dissections: A review

Fully automatic segmentation of type B aortic dissection from CTA images enabled by deep learning.

Quantifying and Leveraging Predictive Uncertainty for Medical Image Assessment

Accuracy and variability of semiautomatic centerline analysis versus manual aortic measurement techniques for TEVAR.

Image-based assessment of uncertainty in quantification of carotid lumen

This work aims at providing a tool, that quantifies the lumen diameter on different image datasets and gives an estimate of quantification uncertainties, so that they can be taken into consideration when evaluating and comparing measurements.
