Vessel extraction in coronary X-ray Angiography.

Abstract : This paper describes a method to extract the vascular centerlines and contours in coronary angiography. The proposed approach associates geometric moments for the estimation of a "cylinder-like model" and relies on a tracking process. The orientation of the cylinder axis and its local diameter are computed from the analytical expressions of the geometric moments of up to order 2. Experimental results are presented on several images of two sequences that show the efficiency of the method.
