Title:
Lumen Segmentation in Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography Using Backscattering Tracked and Initialized Random Walks. 
Abstract:
Intravascular imaging using ultrasound or optical coherence tomography (OCT) is predominantly used to adjunct clinical information in interventional cardiology. OCT provides high-resolution images for detailed investigation of atherosclerosis-induced thickening of the lumen wall resulting in arterial blockage and triggering acute coronary events. However, the stochastic uncertainty of speckles limits effective visual investigation over large volume of pullback data, and clinicians are challenged...    »
