Accurately detecting edges of the coronary arterial walls in intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) images plays an important role in quantitative assessments of the coronary artery diseases, though it may be a challenge to medical image analysis. This paper presented a method to extract the edges, main characteristics of which were summarized as: 1) The method was based on an improved topologically adaptable snake model (TSnake model). This proposed T-Snake model could successfully address the… CONTINUE READING
