This study proposes a fully automatic labeling algorithm detecting up to 32 cerebral vessels including arteries and veins, based on 20 data sets of time-resolved contrast-enhanced angiography. The cerebral vessels include: internal carotid arteries (3-segments), middle cerebral arteries (M1), anterior cerebral artery (ACA,A1), ACA (A2), vertebral arteries, basilar artery, posterior cerebral arteries, external carotid, occipital arteries, superficial temporal arteries, internal jugular veins, and the sigmoid, transverse, superior sagittal and straight sinuses. The algorithm’s performance was validated on another 20 data sets demonstrating high precision including for the identification of the fetal posterior communicating artery, a common variant of the blood vessels.
