Personalized Pulmonary Trunk Modeling for Intervention Planning and Valve Assessment Estimated from CT Data
Pulmonary valve disease affects a significant portion of the global population and often occurs in conjunction with other heart dysfunctions. Emerging interventional methods enable percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation, which constitute an alternative to open heart surgery. As minimal invasive procedures become common practice, imaging and non-invasive assessment techniques turn into key clinical tools. In this paper, we propose a novel approach for intervention planning as well as morphological and functional quantification of the pulmonary d valve. An abstraction of the anatomic structures is represented through a four-dimensional, physiological model able to capture large pathological variation. A hierarchical estimation, based on robust learning methods, is applied to identify the patient-specific model parameters from volumetric CT scans. The algorithm involves detection of piecewise affine parameters, fast centre-line computation and local surface delineation. The estimated p...
