Multiple hypothesis tracking based extraction of airway trees from CT data: using statistical ranking of template-matched hypotheses

Publikation: KonferencebidragPosterForskningfagfællebedømt

Segmentation of airway trees from CT scans of lungs has important clinical applications, in relation to the diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Here we present a method based on multiple hypothesis tracking (MHT) and template matching, originally devised for vessel segmentation, to extract airway trees. Idealized tubular templates are constructed and ranked using scores assigned based on the image data. Several such regularly spaced hypotheses are used in constructing a hypothesis tree, which is then traversed to obtain improved
segmentation results.
