3D Shape Analysis for Coarctation of the Aorta


A population of 54 cases diagnosed with coarctation of the aorta (CoA) was investigated for correlations between complex 3D shape and clinical parameters. Based on a statistical shape model (SSM) of the aortic arch (AA) including supra-aortic branches, clustering was performed. The result confirmed the current clinical classification scheme (normal/crenel or gothic). Furthermore, another 3D shape class related to age of the patient was identified.
