Paper Abstract

This paper presents work in progress concerning an automatic system for the 3D reconstruction and representation of the cerebral vessels. It is based on a separate delineation of the blood vessels in two stereo images. First, we extract blood vessel segments from the image and subsequently we use those high level primitives to guide the stereoscopic matching process. Therefore, we make extensive use of domain specific knowledge like the orientation, thickness and intensity of blood vessels.
