3D segmentation of coronary arteries based on advanced mathematical morphology techniques

Abstract : In this article, we propose an automatic algorithm for coronary artery segmentation from 3D X-ray data sequences of a cardiac cycle (3D-CT scan, 64 detectors, 10 phases). This method is based on recent mathematical morphology techniques (some of them being extended in this article). It is also guided by anatomical knowledge, using discrete geometric tools to fit on the artery shape independently from any perturbation of the data. The application of the method on a validation dataset (60 images: 20 patients in 3 phases) led to 90% correct (and automatically obtained) segmentations, the 10% remaining cases corresponding to images where the SNR was very low.
