The goal of this project was the development of a fast segmentation algorithm for
coronary arteries in MSCT datasets that simultaneously extracts the vascular
tree and provides a rough estimate of the vessel's centerline. For that purpose,
and due to considerations that will be presented later on, the segmentation
technique for boundary extraction known as livewire was chosen as the basis.
The project was developed in MeVisLab, a fast prototyping environment for
medical image processing and visualization. The evaluation of the algorithm was
carried out on a wide set of MSCT scans provided by the Institute of Diagnostic
Radiology, University Hospital Zurich.
