We investigated a method, motion compensated integration (MCI), for enhancing stent Contrast-to-Noise Ratio (CNR) such that stent deployment may be more easily assessed. MCI registers fluoroscopic frames on the basis of stent motion and performs pixel-wise integration to reduce noise. Registration is based on marker balls, high contrast interventional devices which guide the clinician in stent placement. It is assumed that stent motion is identical to that of the marker balls. Detecting marker… CONTINUE READING
