Abstract
Important parameters in Quantitative Coronary Angiography (QCA) are the severity of a stenotic lesion, the length of the lesion, the radius of the non stenotic part of the affected vessel segment and the bifurcation angle (in the case of a bifurcation lesion). Unfortunately, QCA results can be influenced by the viewing angles corresponding with the angiographic images used to perform the QCA. To deal with this viewpoint dependency, computer systems have been developed that determine the optimal angiographic viewing angles (the best possible viewing angles to perform QCA) using a three dimensional (3-D) reconstruction of the coronary arteries. In this paper, a method is presented to determine the optimal viewing angles in a very fast and robust way, without the need of a 3-D reconstruction. Validation using images of phantoms and clinical images proofs its accuracy.
