Cerebral small vessels are largely inaccessible to existing clinical in vivo imaging technologies. As such, early cerebral microvascular morphological changes in small vessel disease (SVD) are difficult to evaluate. A deep learning (DL)-based algorithm was developed to automatically segment lenticulostriate arteries (LSAs) in 3D black blood images acquired at 3T. Using manual segmentations as supervision, 3D segmentation of LSAs is demonstrated to be feasible with relatively high performance and can serve as a useful tool for quantitative morphometric analysis in patients with cerebral SVD.
