Symbolic description of intracerebral vessels segmented from magnetic resonance angiograms and evaluation by comparison with X-ray angiograms

Abstract

We describe and evaluate methods that create detailed vessel trees by linking vessels that have been segmented from magnetic resonance angiograms (MRA). The tree-definition process can automatically exclude erroneous vessel segmentations. The parent-child connectivity information provided by our vessel trees is important to both surgical planning and to… (More)
