Vessel enhancement and segmentation aim at (binary) per-pixel segmentation considering certain local features as probabilistic vessel indicators. We propose a new methodology to combine any local probability map with local directional vessel information. The resulting global vessel segmentation is represented as a set of discrete streamlines populating the vascular structures and providing additional connectivity and geometric shape information. The streamlines are computed by numerical… CONTINUE READING
