A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11836916B2) discloses a method for detecting vascular calcification using a three-dimensional non-angiographic image. The method involves obtaining specific sub-regions within the aortic and coronary regions, identifying calcification regions through threshold segmentation, determining corresponding calcification sub-regions within the detected regions, and displaying them in the image. The system utilizes a pre-trained region identification network to accurately identify and display calcification sub-regions, aiding in the detection and visualization of vascular calcification in medical imaging.

Furthermore, the patent details the pre-training process of the region identification network, which involves adjusting network parameters based on predicted and actual sub-regions from sample images. The method also includes specific conditions for identifying aortic and coronary calcification regions through threshold segmentation, considering regional connectivity, volume, morphology, and space features. Additionally, the system allows for parameter modification requests and calculates a score value representing the calcification degree of the detected sub-regions, providing a comprehensive approach to vascular calcification detection and analysis in medical imaging applications.
