CoronARe: a Coronary Artery Reconstruction Challenge

We are organizing CoronARe: a Coronary Artery Reconstruction Challenge
in conjunction with RAMBO [1] at MICCAI 2017.

CoronARe seeks to objectively compare current state-of-the-art methods
as we believe that the availability of public benchmarks will
contribute to drive forward this area.

CoronARe ranks state-of-the-art methods in symbolic and tomographic
coronary artery reconstruction from interventional C-arm rotational
angiography. Specifically, we will benchmark the performance of the
methods using accurately pre-processed data, and study the effects of
imperfect pre-processing conditions (segmentation and background
subtraction errors). The evaluation will be performed in a controlled
environment using digital phantom images.

For an in-depth description of the participation process kindly refer to:

The challenge results and respective winners will be presented during
the RAMBO workshop on September 10th 2017.

Submission to CoronARe will remain open after MICCAI 2017, however,
submissions later than September 5th, 2017 will not be considered for
this competition.

We plan on inviting authors of successful methods to co-author a
section in an article about the challenge, describing their competing
