Abstract
Three-dimensional (3-D) reconstruction of the coronary artery is important for the diagnosis and interventional treatment of cardiovascular diseases. In this paper, a novel mean composited external force back-projective composition model is proposed and integrated into the deformable model framework for the 3-D reconstruction of coronary arteries from multiple angiograms. The parametric snake evolves toward the real vascular centerline in 3-D space based on the integrated internal energy and composited external energy. In addition, a polynomial function is constructed to determine the diameter of the cross section of the vascular segments, which fully utilizes the back-projection information of multiple angiograms. The deformable and proposed methods are comparatively validated using phantom datasets and routine angiographic images with respect to space and reprojection Euclidean distance errors. The experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness and robustness of the proposed model, which can achieve a mean space error of 0.570 mm and a mean reprojection error of 0.351 mm. In addition, the influence of the angle difference to the reconstruction accuracy is discussed and validated on phantom datasets, which demonstrate that an angle difference of for any two angiograms is suitable for the 3-D reconstruction process.

Low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) images are often severely degraded by amplified mottle noise and streak artifacts. These artifacts are often hard to suppress without introducing tissue blurring effects. In this paper, we propose to process LDCT images using a novel image-domain algorithm called “artifact suppressed dictionary learning (ASDL).” In this ASDL method, orientation and scale information on artifacts is exploited to train artifact atoms, which are then combined with tissue feature ...

The clinical value of the 3D reconstruction of a coronary artery is important for the diagnosis and intervention of cardiovascular diseases. This work proposes a method based on a deformable model for reconstructing coronary arteries from two monoplane angiographic images acquired from different angles. First, an external force back-projective composition model is developed to determine the external force, for which the force distributions in different views are back-projected to the 3D space an...

This paper presents a novel energy back-projective composition model (EBPCM) for 3-D reconstruction of the coronary arteries from two mono-plane angiographic images. A major problem with the commonly used parameter deformable model is that the predefined correspondences may become non-strict matching after the curve evolution, which generally leads to large extra calculation errors. In this study, the energy field in the image is back-projected to 3-D space and decomposed into three independent ...

High-quality reconstruction of coronary bifurcations is crucial in the evaluation of lesions, dedicated bifurcation stents, and stent techniques. Although 3-dimensional (3D) X-ray angiography restores natural bending of vascular structures, optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides an ultra–high resolution of the vessel wall morphology and stents at baseline and follow-up. We present a new method for 3D fusion of the 2 imaging modalities combined with flow simulation at the target bifurcation....

In this paper, a method for recovering 3D curves of the free-from object from multiple images with partial occlusion is put forward. To ensure reliability of feature recognition and to heighten the precision of image processing, a set of marked object curves are applied. A method to extract the curves in the images by skeleton extracting and fitting is proposed. The optimization of curve matching between the image pairs is established. The objective function is optimized to reconstruct 3D curves...

This paper presents a 3D reconstruction method of coronary arteries from multiple projections, that works efficiently in two steps: first, a 2D processing is performed to obtain and classify the vessels branches on the projections, estimating also the radii. Then, a novel 3D reconstruction step is performed from pair of projections, finding the best intersections between ray bundles corresponding to the same branches to extract the 3D vessel trajectories, that is robust to motion. Topological co...

Abstract Anatomical and functional information of cardiac vasculature is a key component in the field of interventional cardiology. With the technology of C-arm CT it is possible to reconstruct static intraprocedural 3D images from angiographic projection data. Current approaches attempt to add the temporal dimension (4D). In the assumption of periodic heart motion, ECG-gating techniques can be used. However, arrhythmic heart signals and slight breathing motion are degrading image quality freque...

To present an efficient and robust method for 3-D reconstruction of the coronary artery tree from multiple ECG-gated views of an X-ray angiography. 2-D coronary artery centerlines are extracted automatically from X-ray projection images using an enhanced multi-scale analysis. For the difficult data with low vessel contrast, a semi-automatic tool based on fast marching method is implemented to allow manual correction of automatically-extracted 2-D centerlines. First, we formulate the 3-D symbolic...

Vessel centerline extraction from x-ray angiography (XRA) images is essential for vessel structure analysis in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. However, complete and continuous centerline extraction remains a challenging task due to image noise, poor contrast, and complexity of vessel structure. Thus, an iterative multi-path search framework for automatic vessel centerline extraction is proposed. First, the seed points of the vessel structure are detected and sorted by confidence. With ...

Motion compensation can eliminate the inconsistency of respiratory and cardiac phases during image acquisitions for precise vascular reconstruction in the clinical diagnosis of vascular disease from X-ray angiographic image sequences. In X-ray-based vascular interventional therapy, motion modeling can simulate the process of organ deformation driven by motion signals to display a dynamic organ on angiograms without contrast agent injection. Automatic respiratory signal estimation from X-ray angi...

Quantification of coronary artery stenosis on X-ray angiography (XRA) images is of great importance during the intraoperative treatment of coronary artery disease. It serves to quantify the coronary artery stenosis by estimating the clinical morphological indices, which are essential in clinical decision making. However, stenosis quantification is still a challenging task due to the overlapping, diversity and small-size region of the stenosis in the XRA images. While efforts have been devoted to...

Vascular tracking of coronary angiographic image sequences is one of the most clinically important tasks in the diagnostic assessment and interventional guidance of cardiac disease. It is difficult to automate this application because the vascular structure is complex; moreover, unsatisfactory angiography image quality may exacerbate the difficulty of vasculature extraction. This study converts vascular tracking into branch matching and proposes a novel and automatic greedy soft match algorithm....

X-ray angiography is the most commonly used imaging modality for the detection of coronary stenoses due to its high spatial and temporal resolution of lumen contour and its utility to guide coronary interventions in real time. However, the high inter-and intra-observer variability in interpreting the geometry of 3D vascular structure based on multiple 2D image projections is a limitation in the accurate determination of lesion severity. This could be addressed by the 3D reconstruction of the cor...
