Table 4 Comparison of centerline algorithms on MRA brain images

From: Validation of an arterial tortuosity measure with application to hypertension collection of clinical hypertensive patients

Algorithm ICA siphons accurate Portion ICA siphons correct Both ICA correct in image Portion correct images Mean number of trees Standard deviation of trees Mean stability Standard deviation stability
COM 15/16 0.938 7/8 0.875 37.000 12.352 0.872 0.0459
MDFE 7/16 0.438 1/8 0.125 39.875 13.228 0.673 0.0732
DFE-COM 15/16 0.938 7/8 0.875 38.625 11.439 0.825 0.0434
  1. The COM and DFE-COM cost function shortest paths centerline algorithms calculated the correct centerline in the same number of correct ICA siphons.
