Paper Published: Geometric Characterization of Cerebral Aneurysms

Congratulations to BSL collaborator Marina Piccinellli on the publication of "Automatic neck plane detection and 3D geometric characterization of aneurysmal sacs".  This VMTK paper had a long germination, starting several years ago during one of my trips to work with Luca Antiga in Bergamo, through to a rather long and tortuous review process.  On the other hand, once it was accepted it showed up online in record time!

In the spirit of our open-source philosophy, the Aneurisk models used in this study are available online, and VMTK code should appear soon.  We hope that this will spur some kind of standardization in the geometric definition of cerebral aneurysms, and so allow the kind of large, multicenter studies that are sorely needed.
