Abstract

A computerized scheme for the automated segmentation of contrast enhanced arteries is developed for computerized tomographic angiography data. Segmentation is performed with 2D images on a slice-by-slice base. Image processing techniques include gray- level thresholding, eight-point connectivity tracking, region growing, moment analysis, and morphological erosion. The results enable the generation of separated 3D displays of both vascular and nonvascular structures. The method has been applied to several clinical cases and has shown great promises.
