The proposed model is devoted to the segmentation and reconstruction of branching structures, like vascular trees. We rely on an explicit representation of a deformable tree, where topological relationships between segments are modeled. This allows easy posterior interactions and quantitative analysis, such as measuring diameters or lengths of vessels. Starting from a unique user-provided root point, an initial tree is built with a technique relying on minimal paths. Within the constructed tree… CONTINUE READING
