Automatic and semi-automatic magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) segmentation techniques can potentially save radiologists large amounts of time required for manual segmentation and can facilitate further data analysis. Our proposed MRA segmentation method uses a mathematical modeling technique which is well-suited to the complicated curve-like structure of blood vessels. Specifically, we define the segmentation task as an energy minimization over all 3D curves then use a level set method to… CONTINUE READING
