Two Point Minimum Cost Path Approach for CTA Coronary Centerline Extraction
No opinion
In this work a minimum cost path approach is adopted to extract coronary artery centerlines from CTA data. The algorithm depends on the manual definition of the start and end point of the vessel. The cost image used in the minimal cost path approach is based [...]

3D Segmentation in the Clinic: A Grand  Challenge II: MS lesion segmentation
No opinion
This paper describes the setup of a segmentation competition for the automatic extraction of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) lesions from brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) data. This competition is one of three competitions that make up a comparison workshop at [...]

Construction of Statistical Shape Models from Minimal Deformations
No opinion
Abstract. Statistical shape models (SSM) capture the variation of shape across a population, in order to allow further analysis. Previous work demonstrates that deformation fields contain global transformation components, even if global pre- registration is [...]

Simultaneous Manifold Learning and Clustering: Grouping White Matter Fiber Tracts Using a Volumetric White Matter Atlas
No opinion
We propose a new clustering algorithm. This algorithm performs clustering and manifold learning simultaneously by using a graph-theoretical approach to manifold learning. We apply this algorithm in order to cluster white matter fiber tracts obtained [...]

Morphological Appearance Manifolds in Computational Anatomy: Groupwise Registration and Morphological Analysis
No opinion
The field of computational anatomy has developed rigorous frameworks for analyzing anatomical shape, based on diffeomorphic transformations of a template. However, differences in algorithms used for template warping, in regularization parameters, and in the [...]

On What Manifold do Diffusion Tensors Live?
No opinion
Diffusion tensor imaging has become an important research and clinical tool, owing to its unique ability to infer microstructural properties of living tissue. Increased use has led to a demand for statistical tools to analyze diffusion tensor data and [...]

Combinatorial Ricci Curvature for Image Processing
No opinion
A new Combinatorial Ricci curvature and Laplacian operators for grayscale images are introduced and tested on 2D medical images. These notions are based upon more general concepts developed by R. Forman. Further applications are also suggested.

The Labeling of Cortical Sulci using Multidimensional Scaling
No opinion
The task of classifying or labeling cortical sulci is made difficult by the fact that individual sulci may not have unique distinguishing features and usually need to be identified by a multivariate feature set that takes the relative spatial arrangement into [...]

Computational Biomechanics for Medicine III - Workshop proceedings
No opinion
A novel partnership between surgeons and machines, made possible by advances in computing and engineering technology, could overcome many of the limitations of traditional surgery. By extending surgeons' ability to plan and carry out surgical interventions [...]

An Automatic Seeding Method For Coronary Artery Segmentation and Skeletonization in CTA
No opinion
An automatic seeding method for coronary artery segmentation and skeletonization is presented. The new method includes automatic removal of the rib cage, tracing of the ascending aorta and initial planting of seeds for the coronary arteries. The automatic [...]
