I’ve been trying to use some parts of the CenterlineComputation.py code, and there are some things that confuse me. What I’d like to do is create a manual vessel segmentation for a single non-branching artery, create a surface model for it, and calculate a centreline for the full length of the model. Below is an image of the artery surface model.
So, I know where I would like to start and end the centreline, and it’s in the middle of the vessel at the Superior and Inferior ends. I’m confused by how CenterlineComputation.py is set up though. At least for extractNetwork, it appears that the source point is one from the wall of the vessel model, and openSurfaceAtPoint is used to isolate the source point from any cells. Am I understanding this correctly?
Could you explain how the source and target points for computeCenterlines are chosen?
If I know where I want the source and target to be, but there aren’t points already there, can I add points to the model and set those as the source and target?
Thanks in advance for your help.
