ABSTRACT
In the context of vessel tree structures segmentation with implicit
deformable models, we propose to exploit convolution surfaces to
introduce a novel variational formulation, robust to bifurcations, tan-
gential vessels and aneurysms. Vessels are represented by an implicit
function resulting from the convolution of the centerlines of the ves-
sels, modeled as a second implicit function, with localized kernels
of continuously-varying scales. The advantages of this coupled rep-
resentation are twofold. First, it allows for a joint determination of
the vessels centerlines and radii, with a single model relevant for
