Intravascular optical coherence tomography (IVOCT) lumen-based computational flow dynamics (CFD) enables physiologic evaluations such as of the fractional flow reserve (FFR) and wall sheer stress. In this study, we developed an accurate, time-efficient method for extracting lumen contours of the coronary artery. The contours of cross-sectional images containing wide intimal discontinuities due to guide wire shadowing and large bifurcations were delineated by utilizing the natural longitudinal lumen continuity of the arteries. Our algorithm was applied to 5931 pre-intervention OCT images acquired from 40 patients. For a quantitative comparison, the images were also processed through manual segmentation (the reference standard) and automated ones utilizing cross-sectional and longitudinal continuities. The results showed that the proposed algorithm outperforms other schemes, exhibiting a strong correlation (R = 0.988) and overlapping and non-overlapping area ratios of 0.931 and 0.101, respectively. To examine the accuracy of the OCT-derived FFR calculated using the proposed scheme, a CFD simulation of a three-dimensional coronary geometry was performed. The strong correlation with a manual lumen-derived FFR (R = 0.978) further demonstrated the reliability and accuracy of our algorithm with potential applications in clinical settings.
