原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a leading cause of death worldwide. Although coronary CT angiography (CTA) and other new technologies emerge increasingly, conventional coronary angiography (CCA) remains as the gold standard for diagnosis of CAD, and the only way to be involved in the interventional surgery. Centerline extraction of the coronary arteries is the essential information for radiologists, and is also the foundation for a computer-aided detection (CADe) system to assist them. As the data is obtained more and more, manual extraction is impractical, a fully automatic extraction method is necessary for radiologists. However, due to the projection nature, the extraction of vessels becomes extremely difficult because of non-uniform stating caused by the contrast agent...
