Three-dimensional segmentation of vasculature is indeed challenging. We hope to see the geometric techniques fused with regularizers to improve vessel segmentation. Alone, geometric techniques such as level sets are not sufficient. We hope to see more articles in the future on the following topics: 1. Generic angiography imaging for white- and black-blood angiography 2. Fast three-dimensional arterial and venous tree reconstruction 3. Artery-vein separation 4. Volumetric vessel tree reconstruction using artery-vein separation.
