Abstract (EN)Gradient Vector Flow has become a popular method to recover medial information in medical imaging, in particular for vessels centerline extraction. This renewed interest has been motivated by its ability to proceed from gray-scale images, without prior segmentation. However, another interesting property lies in the diffusion process used to solve the corresponding variational problem. We propose a method to recover scale information in the context of vascular structures extraction, relying on analytical properties of the Gradient Vector Flow only, with no multiscale analysis. Through simple one-dimensional considerations, we demonstrate the ability of our approach to estimate the radii of the vessels with an error of 10% only in the presence of noise and less than 3% without noise. Our approach is evaluated on convolved bar-like templates and is illustrated on 2D X-ray angiographies. (c) 2012 IEEE. Personal use of this material is permitted.
