Abstract

A system for luminal contour segmentation in intravascular ultrasound images is proposed Moment based texture features together with the radial distance feature are used for clustering of the input image pixels. After the clustering, morphological smoothing and boundary detection process are applied and the final image is obtained. The proposed method was applied to 15 images of different patients and a correlation coefficient equal to 0.86 was obtained between the areas of lumen automatically and manually defined.
