In this thesis we have reported on the development and evaluation of dynamic image analysis approaches towards improving image guidance for percutaneous coronary
interventions. We have proposed layer separation techniques for retrospective and prospective vessel enhancement in X-ray angiograms. In addition, we have demonstrated two applications that benefit from layer separation for extraction of respiratory motion surrogate and detection of contrast inflow in XA sequences. Finally, we have reported the development of a dynamic coronary roadmapping approach for providing real-time visual guidance on X-ray fluoroscopic images for reduced use of contrast agent during PCI procedures.
