Paper Abstract

Detection and quantitative parameterization of brain blood vessels in magnetic resonance images (MRI) are an important aid to diagnosing neoplasmic diseases, planning surgical operations or detecting the atrophy of blood vessels. Fast and effective computer programs are needed to extract quantitative information from MRI data - to increase objectivity, accuracy and repeatability of the diagnosis. To develop such programs we must use algorithms for 3D images segmentation, necessary to build geometrical models of the blood vessels. These models are then used for vessel tree visualization and quantitative description.
