CAVAREV: CArdiac VAsculature Reconstruction EValuation
The main goal of CAVAREV is to enable an easy and objective comparison of different dynamic reconstruction algorithms.
The area of application is the 3-D and 4-D reconstruction of contrasted cardiac vessels, e.g. the coronary arteries using C-arm CT (rotational angiography). Various methods exist in literature with lots of nice results. However, the results can vary significantly between phantom and real clinical data.
Therefore, we provide:
- Open (i.e. public) and easy accessible projection data.
- Anatomically and physiologically correct projection data based on patient data.
- Two degrees of difficulty: (a) Strictly periodic cardiac motion and (b) an aperiodic combination of cardiac and breathing motion.
- An online evaluation platform where 3-D reconstructions can be uploaded and the reconstruction quality is assessed objectively.
