Image analysis for detection of coronary artery soft plaques in MDCT images

In this paper we aim to develop a computationally- efficient image-segmentation procedure for detection and quantification of soft plaques in coronary arteries from multidetector CT images. The proposed method consists of three steps: extraction of the arterial lumen centerline, segmentation of the lumen and arterial wall separately with locally adaptive… (More)
