Paper Abstract

A method of three-dimensional reconstruction of coronary artery configuration from biplane angiographic images is dis-cussed in this paper. The proposed method is based on the geonetric mathematics of X-ray imaging apparatus in cineangiogram and the tracking of leading edge of injected contrast material into each vessel for identification of corresponding points on two images taken from orthogonal views. The three-dimensional morphology of coronary artery can be obtained by this recon-struction procedure. The reconstructed arterial configuration is displayed as a shaded surface model at any arbitrary angle for viewing. Analysis of reconstructed arteries provides the useful morphologic and functional information on vascular system for diagnosis of vascular diseases.
