Automatic detection of stent struts with thick neointimal growth in intravascular optical coherence tomography image sequences.

Abstract

To assist cardiologists investigating neointimal tissue growth on stents during follow-up with optical coherence tomography (OCT), we developed an automatic algorithm to locate deeply buried stent struts and to quantify the restenosis burden. The technique is based on an improved steerable filter for computing the local ridge strength and orientation. It… (More)
