Paper Abstract

An algorithm for the detection of the coronary boundaries in single-view angiograms is proposed. The algorithm, the maximal differential curve tracking (MDCT), uses the directional gray value information available in digital angiograms. The search strategy, which is based on differential method, finds a maximal cost edge along a coronary artery. The results show this method is robust and the detected boundary is continuous. It is beneficial to measure the vessel diameter and locate the stenosis.
