Structural morphology of renal vasculature

Abstract:

An automatic segmentation technique has been developed and applied to two renal micro-computer tomography (CT) images. With the use of a 20-microm voxel resolution image, the arterial and venous trees were segmented for the rat renal vasculature, distinguishing resolving vessels down to 30 microm in radius. A higher resolution 4-microm voxel image of a renal vascular subtree, with vessel radial values down to 10 microm, was segmented. Strahler ordering was applied to each subtree using an ite...
