The method

Automatic quantification of calcifications in the three main coronary arteries (LAD, LCX, RCA) and the thoracic aorta in non-contrast CT scans. The method has been trained with- and evaluated on- lung cancer screening CTs, calcium scoring CTs, PET attenuation correction CTs, radiotherapy treatment planning CTs, diagnostic chest CTs and calcium screening CTs. More information on the data and performance of the method can be found in our publication.
