This article describes a novel method for highly accurate and effective localization of the transverse section of the carotis comunis artery in ultrasound images. The method has a high success rate, approximately 97%. Unlike analytical methods based on geometric descriptions of the object sought, the method proposed here can cover a large area of shape variation of the artery under study, which normally occurs during examinations as a result of the pressure on the examined tissue, tilt of the… CONTINUE READING
