In this paper we propose a mean-shift based technique for a precise tracking and segmentation of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) from computed tomography (CT) angiography images. The proposed method applies median filter on the gradient of ray-length and linear interpolation for denoising.
The segmentation result can be used for measurement of aortic shape and dimensions. Knowledge of aortic shape and size is very important for selection of appropriate stent graft device for treatment of AAA. Comparing to conventional approaches, our method is very efficient and can save a lot of manual labors.
