Cooperative carotid artery centerline extraction in MRI

Andrés M. Arias-Lorza, Daniel Bos, Aad van der Lugt, Marleen de Bruijne, Dalin Tang
2018 PLoS ONE  
The centerline of the artery bifurcation is often extracted by means of two independent minimum cost paths ranging from the common to the internal and the external carotid artery.  ...  This method avoids that both centerlines follow the same cheapest path after the bifurcation, which is a common error when the paths are extracted independently.  ...  We define the best path as the one with the lowest average cost, where the total cost is given by the minimal action map U at the end point, which is divided by the path length to get the average cost.  ...
