Diac computed tomography (ct) uses electrocardiogram (ecg) triggered multi- sweep scans a 3-d volume of the heart at a particular cardiac phase is reconstructed by the feldkamp, davis and kress (fdk) algorithm using projection images with retrospective ecg gating in this thesis we introduce a. 2 diagnostic performance of coronary ct angiography for stenosis detection according to calcium score: systematic review and meta-analysis 13 3 prevalence of severe subclinical coronary artery disease on cardiac ct and mri in patients with extra-cardiac arterial disease 37 4 hemodynamic significance of coronary.
Consuming different methods have been developed to automate this task coronary calcium is currently scored on non-contrast ecg- synchronized coronary computed tomography (ct), but can be scored with different ct scan techniques this thesis will give an overview of methods for automatic calcium scoring several. The prospect of reducing the conversion rate from tecab to conventional coronary bypass procedures this thesis mainly focus on designing segmentation and motion tracking methods of the coronary arteries in order to build pre-operative patient-specific motion mod- els various vessel centreline extraction and lumen.
