Reconstruction of Coronary Arteries from a Single Rotational X-Ray Projection Sequence

Abstract

Cardiovascular diseases remain the primary cause of death in developed countries. In most cases, exploration of possibly underlying coronary artery pathologies is performed using X-ray coronary angiography. Current clinical routine in coronary angiography is directly conducted in 2-D projection images from several static viewing angles. However, for diagnosis and treatment purposes, coronary artery reconstruction is highly suitable. The purpose of this study is to provide physicians with a 3-D model of coronary arteries, e.g. for absolute three-dimensional measures for lesion assessment, instead of direct projective measures deduced from the images, which are highly dependent on the viewing angle. In this article, we propose a novel method to reconstruct coronary arteries from one single rotational X-ray projection sequence. As a side result, we also obtain an estimation of the coronary artery motion. Our method consists of 3 main consecutive steps: (1) 3-D reconstruction of coronary artery centerlines, including respiratory motion compensation, (2) coronary artery 4-D motion computation, and (3) 3-D tomographic reconstruction of coronary arteries, involving compensation for respiratory and cardiac motions. We present some experiments on clinical datasets, and the feasibility of a true 3-D Quantitative Coronary Analysis is demonstrated.
