Abstract

This paper presents a method of deriving the skeletal points of an arterial tree directly from the grey level information statistics of the background information. Such a skeletonization procedure can actually aid in determining likely locations of arterial skeletal points. A recursive search scheme to aggregate skeletal representation and provide a robust representation of the arterial tree is presented. Results are shown for one angiogram.
