I would like to develop an automatic vessel segmentation algorithm in Python code based on the abdominal aorta.
Currently, I am stuck in the trial-and-error procedure since I really would like to avoid any manual operator interventions such as pointing seeds manually.
I tried the VTKVesselEnhancement module but didn’t succeed. Moreover, I couldn’t find the perfect filter operation.
Is anyone familiar with any gradient filter in which I could find the vessel in some pixels and perform some morphological or seed growing with these pixels as a starting point?
Your help is appreciated!
