Guidewire tracking in x-ray videos of endovascular interventions

Article English OPEN
Unal, G. B.; Slabaugh, G. G.;

We present a novel method to track a guidewire in cardiac xray video. Using variational calculus, we derive differential equations that deform a spline, subject to intrinsic and extrinsic forces, so that it matches the image data, remains smooth, and preserves an a prio... View more
