Paper Abstract

We report on work in progress on segmentation and presentation of three-dimensional vascular morphology on 3D MR and Doppler Ultrasound angiograms. The segmentation strategy is twofold. First, we enhance blood-vessel-like structures using 3D non-linear filters. Second, these images can be directly displayed or used as input to medium-level processes. The medium-level filters are cast in the framework of energy minimization using deformable models.
