Segmentation of Cerebral Vascular Structures Using an Active Contour Model

Abstract

Segmentation of brain blood vessels is essential in medical diagnostic applications. In this study, a new active contour model (ACM) implemented by the level-set framework is proposed for segmenting vessels from TOF-MRA data. The energy function of the proposed model, combining region intensity and boundary information, is composed of two region terms, one… (More)
