The segmentation of the myocardium based on the 17-segment model as recommended by the American Heart Association is widely used in medical practice. The patient-specific coronary anatomy does not play a role in this model. Due to large variations in coronary anatomy among patients, this can result in an inaccurate mapping between myocardial segments and coronary arteries. We present two approaches to include the patient-specific coronary anatomy in this mapping. The first approach adapts the...
