In this study we present results for extraction of time-resolved 3D PC-MR angiography from PC-MRI data with 3-directional velocity encoding using fully automated feature based fuzzy clustering for dynamic aortic lumen segmentation. This approach was applied and evaluated in 11 healthy subjects and 12 patients with different cardiovascular pathologies.
