Abstract

In this paper, a new method for the automatical identification of coronary border was presented. It mainly utilizes mathematical morphology to segment the blood vessels and derive a refined skeletons for tracking. Finally, a tracking algorithm incorporated with a branching-point model, match filter, skeletons of blood vessels is applied to detect the arterial border and estimate the lumen width of blood vessels. Experiments reveal that our approach can not only eliminate background variations and noise, but accurately define the boundary and coronary angiograms.
