Abstract
We have developed a technique for fast and reliable, computer-assisted segmentation of the vessels, thereby obviating time-consuming manual segmentation of intracranial vessels for creation of a 3D model. The high quality of the bone segmentation greatly facilitates the segmentation of the vascular structures. As a result, computer tomography angiography examinations may be a viable alternative to a more invasive and expensive conventional angiography techniques used in the diagnosis of the pathology of intracranial vessels, especially in the cerebrovascular emergencies.
