The morphometry (diameters, length, and angles) of coronary arteries is related to their function. A simple, easy, and accurate image-based method to seamlessly extract the morphometry for coronary arteries is of significant value for understanding the structure-function relation. Here, the morphometry of large (> or = 1 mm in diameter) coronary arteries was extracted from computed tomography (CT) images using a recently validated segmentation algorithm. The coronary arteries of seven pigs were…

Construction of a 3D coronary map to assess geometrical information in-vivo from coronary patients
TLDR
The results suggest that CAD patients follow a compensatory mechanism, dilating the vessels to maintain a normal coronary flow, which is consistent with the literature.
Estimation of coronary length-volume allometric relations Of human arteries invivo using CT
TLDR
The combination of multislice CT with morphological extraction algorithms was effective to extract allometric functions from coronary arteries in patients and can be easily applied in the clinic.
Vasculature reconstruction from 3D cryomicrotome images
TLDR
Methods to automatically reconstruct accurate detailed coronary vascular anatomical models from high-resolution three-dimensional optical fluorescence cryomicrotomography image volumes for simulating blood flow in coronary arterial trees are presented.

TLDR
In a network analysis of coronary blood flow, the circuit must agree with the anatomical data on the branching pattern and geometry of the coronary vasculature, and the basic hemodynamic equations and boundary conditions must be satisfied.
Quantitative analysis of coronary artery from computed tomography angiography images
TLDR
An automated, robust and efficient method to approach most Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) images is still in demand due to the intrinsic ill-posedness and the external stenosis quantification difficulties such as manual.
Computed tomography-based diagnosis of diffuse compensatory enlargement of coronary arteries using scaling power laws
TLDR
The findings provide a clinical rationale for simple, accurate and non-invasive diagnosis of positive remodelling of coronary arteries, using conventional CT scans, and demonstrate that KLV < 18 in the length–volume scaling relation is a good index ofpositive remodelling in coronary arteries.
CT-based diagnosis of diffuse coronary artery disease on the basis of scaling power laws.
TLDR
The retrospective scaling analysis provides a quantitative rationale for diagnosis of diffuse CAD in patients with metabolic syndrome.
Allometric scaling patterns among the human coronary artery tree, myocardial mass, and coronary artery flow
TLDR
The results suggest that the fundamental design principle of the human coronary arterial network may follow allometric scaling law.
Patient-Specific Prediction of Coronary Plaque Growth From CTA Angiography: A Multiscale Model for Plaque Formation and Progression
TLDR
3-D model of plaque formation and progression that was tested in a set of patients who underwent coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) for anginal symptoms suggests that incorporation in atherosclerotic models of systemic and local hemodynamic features may better predict evolution of plaques in coronary artery disease stable patients.

Validation of Image-Based Method for Extraction of Coronary Morphometry
TLDR
The extraction algorithm described in this paper is based on a topological analysis of a vector field generated by normal vectors of the extracted vessel wall and the agreement was found to be excellent with a root mean square deviation between computed vessel diameters and optical measurements.

Scaling of myocardial mass to flow and morphometry of coronary arteries.
TLDR
The results show that arterial volume is linearly related to regional myocardial mass, whereas the sum of coronary arterial branch lengths, vessel diameters, and volumetric flow show an approximately 3/4, 3/8, and3/4 power-law relationship, respectively, in relation to myocardia mass.

In this study, the statistical distribution of blood pressure, blood flow, and blood volume in all branches of the coronary arterial tree is determined based on the anatomical branching pattern of the artery tree and the statistical data on the lengths and diameters of the blood vessels.
Flow patterns in three-dimensional porcine epicardial coronary arterial tree.
TLDR
A detailed hemodynamic analysis using a three-dimensional finite element method in a left anterior descending epicardial arterial tree, including main trunk and primary branches, based on computed tomography scans found that low WSS and high OSI coincide with disturbed flows opposite to the flow divider and lateral to the junction orifice of the main trunkand primary branches.
