Abstract
Computer-aided analysis of coronary cine-angiograms provides ways to extract information about the structure of the coronary arterial tree from these films. The delineation of the coronary tree in sin-gle frames will be described, as well as the assessment of local contraction patterns from two ortho-gonal cine-angiograms. The procedure to detect the coronary tree consists of a gated background subtraction method, followed by a region growing process. The Hilditch-skeleton forms the basis for the construction of an attributed binary tree, where the nodes correspond with bifurcations in the arterial system. Minimum-cost tree-matching procedures on two series of attributed binary trees from two orthogonal cine-angiograms are used for the assessment of local epicardial contraction patterns.
