Vessel filtering and segmentation of coronary CT angiographic images

Coronary artery disease is the most common type of cardiovascular disease. If a coronary artery becomes narrowed or occluded due to plaque build-up, a decrease in blood flowing to the myocardium may cause ischemia, leading to fatal consequences [ 1 …]. In recent years, coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) images have become critical for cardiovascular disease filtering, diagnosis, and treatment. However, it is difficult and time-consuming for clinicians to track and analyze coronary arteries manually. Therefore, the accurate and automatic segmentation of coronary arteries in CTA images has an important practical significance and clinical value [

About this journal

The International Journal for Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (IJCARS) is a peer-reviewed journal that provides a platform for closing the gap between medical and technical disciplines, and encourages interdisciplinary research and development activities in an international environment.

The focus of the journal is on Research and Development of digital imaging methods and computer-assisted diagnostic and therapeutic workflows that match and enhance the skill levels of health care professionals.

One goal of IJCARS is to provide information on new diagnostic and therapeutic processes which are facilitated by computer assisted radiology and surgery. This includes providers' experiences, patient outcomes, economic and ethical considerations, and scientific/medical validation results. It is expected that the resulting awareness by users and providers will accelerate the acceptance of CARS-supported procedures in clinical practice.
