Carotid artery segmentation

Use image segmentation techniques to detect the plaque, find the boundaries and do delineating for further texture feature analysis.

Method

One app was developed with some Python programming techniques using Numpy, Scipy and Matplotlib, it is convenient to segment the region of interest.

Result

The following result shows the carotid artery plaque segmentation results, other analysis like SD (standard deviation), CV ([coefficient of variation] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coefficient_of_variation)), GSM (grayscale median), etc.
