Graph-matching-based computed tomography angiography in peripheral arterial occlusive disease.
Summary of "Graph-matching-based computed tomography angiography in peripheral arterial occlusive disease."
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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Tomography, Spiral Computed
Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.
Cone-beam Computed Tomography
Computed tomography modalities which use a cone or pyramid-shaped beam of radiation.
Tomography, X-ray Computed
Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.
Tomography using radioactive emissions from injected RADIONUCLIDES and computer ALGORITHMS to reconstruct an image.
Descriptive anatomy based on three-dimensional imaging (IMAGING, THREE-DIMENSIONAL) of the body, organs, and structures using a series of computer multiplane sections, displayed by transverse, coronal, and sagittal analyses. It is essential to accurate interpretation by the radiologist of such techniques as ultrasonic diagnosis, MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING, and computed tomography (TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED).
