Atherosclerotic Blood Vessel Tracking and Lumen Segmentation

Most existing active contour model based algorithms require the topology of the object to be known before the tracking action starts. Unfortunately, this requirement is difficult to be satisfied in some practical scenarios since the topography is often difficult to be predicted in advance. For example, in our study of carotid artery, the lumen bifurcates from one common carotid artery into internal and external carotid arteries at certain location along the image
