I am a research assistant working on a project called the Coronary Atlas. As part of this project we extract coronary arteries from CT scans. We currently use the vmtk module for 3D slicer for this without any issues with normal cases. However for diseased cases it is a lot different. I was wondering if anyone is working on or know of someone who is working on something similar and has any pointers on how we can efficiently and accurately segment coronary arteries that have disease and high calcification out of CT scans.
Looking forward to your reply,
