Coronary arteriography is a technique used for evaluating the state of the coronary arteries. Matching of coronary arteries from multiple views is necessary for obtaining a 3-D (three dimensional) description of the arterial tree. Overlapping vessels and artifacts due to digital subtraction of the angiogram background make the matching process quite difficult [6]. Simplex method based linear programming and relaxation based consistent labeling are applied to skeletons from three views in order to obtain a matching of branches between views. Results show low error for 3-D reconstruction, by overlapping its forward projection with the skeleton extracted from one view.
