Abstract

The automatic segmentation and analysis of the aortic arch as well as its branches is of vital importance for Thoracic Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (TEVAR) interventions. This paper explores different possibilities and approaches to the segmentation and vascular analysis of the thoracic aorta in Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) images that is suitable for clinical practice. Our goal is to present the encountered problems and future possible solutions to obtain a fast, automatic,robust and accurate method based on front propagation algorithms.
