Recent, rapid advances in mathematical engineering and applied mathematics have opened the door to solving complex problems in angiography imaging. For the first time, this book presents the different medical imaging modalities--MR, CT, x-ray, and ultrasound--for performing angiography and its analysis. Pioneers from a variety of relevant disciplines address state-of-the-art issues related to angiography, pre- and post angiography imaging, and their applications, such as intravascular ultrasound and x-ray fusion, plaque imaging, and morphology analysis. Their presentations cover most of the segmentation algorithms for anatomic blood vessels of the body, such as the brain, aorta, and retina.Advanced Segmentation Techniques Jasjit S. Suri, Swamy Laxminarayan ... The adaptive thresholding steps provided a means offine-tuning the output by sequentially moving to an optimal segmentation and removing ... Some instabilities in the skeletonization algorithm using Matlab were noted and need to be addressed.
