PURPOSE The application and large-scale evaluation of minimum cost path approaches for coronary centerline extraction from computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA) data and the development and evaluation of a novel method to reduce the user-interaction time. METHODS A semiautomatic method based on a minimum cost path approach is evaluated for two… CONTINUE READING
