The thoracic aorta is an anatomical structure that is subject to constant motion. Stent-grafting changes the deformation patterns on the vessel surface, and the nature of these changes is suspected to correlate with treatment outcome. However, they are currently only poorly understood. We propose a method for quantifying the changes in vessel motion caused by stent-grafting in the aortic arch. For this, we automatically build a surface model of the vessel and its movement from gated computed… CONTINUE READING
