Paper Abstract

This paper presents a simple and fast algorithm to extract the skeleton of vascular structures from segmented vessel datasets. Our algorithm is based on a step by step approach to move a small volume of interest along the vessel tree. With the introduction of Signed Distance Function (SDF), the moving sphere along the vessel tree can easily and automatically detect bifurcations and predict the location of next axis point. Some experiments have been carried out to demonstrate the strengths of our proposed method.
