Automatic Lumen Detection on Longitudinal Ultrasound B-Mode Images of the Carotid Using Phase Symmetry




This project developed a method to improve the performance of previous approaches for the automatic detection of the common carotid artery (CCA) lumen ceterline on longitudinal B-mode ultrasound images.

Main Steps:

Candidate lumen detection:

  • Symmetry map
  • DP candidate detection

Lumen selection

  • Feature-based selection
  • Position-based heuristic
