Graph-matching-based computed tomography angiography in peripheral arterial occlusive disease

Published:December 07, 2009DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.clinimag.2009.10.034

      Abstract

      The objective of this study is to compare a graph-matching-based software and a conventional tool for postprocessing of computed tomography angiography (CTA) in correlation with the gold standard digital subtraction angiography. Sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, and interobserver agreement increased from 80.3% to 92.9%, from 69.1% to 92.4%, from 73.5% to 92.8%, and from 0.45 to 0.96, respectively, using the graph-matching-based technique. Graph-matching-based CTA increases sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, and interobserver agreement in comparison to a conventional bone elimination tool in the assessment of peripheral arterial occlusive disease.
