Paper Abstract

Three-dimensional reconstruction of coronary arteries from two views often encounters problems such as vessel overlapping and foreshortening (high inclination) in images and points mismatching between two views. These problems restrict the reconstruction accuracy and often cause erroneous results. Based on a two-view algorithm we have developed techniques to incorporate more than two views into the reconstruction. We demonstrate that inclusion of the additional information helps to uniquely match points among views and increases chances that a point can be clearly seen and accurately measured in at least two views. The reconstruction accuracy is consequently improved.
