Paper Abstract

Cardiac angiograms are preferably imaged jn orthogonal so-called biplane views. In such image pairs the vessels do not resemble each other to such a degree that correspondences between them can be derived directly. Direct computer matches on the basis of similarity have been used for closer angles like 15 or 20 degrees [9 In this recent study model knowledge for each of the standardized angio-projections is used to recognize the vessels in each view. After these two matches for identification the third dimension can be calculated using the fixed and known relation of the orthogonal vascular models. 1.
