    • Thinning or skeletonization -> partially done
  • Boundary detection
    • Intensity, 1st and 2nd derivative -> done
    • Zero-crossing voxels -> done
  • Pulmonary artery tracking & quantification
    • Vessel tracking -> working
    • Radius and volume at each section -> partially done
  • Visualization
    • Extracting PE area in 3DsSpace of f, df, and d2f -> done
