25 May 1989 Automatic Quantitative Analysis Of Digital Cardiac Angiographic Sequences
Author Affiliations +
This paper describes a fully automated system for quantitatively analyzing digital coronary angiograms and ventriculograms. Angiographic and ventriculographic image sequences are initially acquired in a purely digital format and stored on a video-rate digital disk system. Left ventriculograms and coronary angiograms are analyzed by this system which functionally is divided into three distinct categories: 1) Image Sequence Review, 2) Coronary Vasculature Analysis, and 3) Left Ventricular Analysis. The software system described integrates the quantitative analysis functions required in a cardiac catheterization laboratory into a single, menu-driven package. The angiograms and ventriculograms displayed, enhanced, and analyzed are in a digital format. All analyses are performed automatically with provisions for user intervention and editing. The algorithms and models upon which this package is based are described.
