Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR ASSESSING PERFUSION IN AN ANATOMICAL STRUCTURE
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to a system for measuring and assessing hemodynamics in an anatomical structure of a subject, and a method for image processing hemodynamics in at least a part of an anatomical structure in video images acquired from a subject. In particular the present disclosure relates to measuring and assessing hemodynamics in, around and near the surface, in particular the gastrointestinal wall, of the gastrointestinal tract of a subject. One embodiment discloses a method for image processing hemodynamics in at least a part of an anatomical structure in video images acquired from a subject, comprising the steps of: performing image analysis of at least one video sequence acquired after a fluorescent contrast agent has been supplied to the subject, calculating intensity values in one or more regions of interest based on the image analysis, and determining the perfusion slope of the flow of the fluorescent contrast agent through at least one of said regions of interest.
