We analyze localized textural consistencies in high-resolution Micro CT scans of coronary arteries to identify the appearance of diagnostically relevant changes in tissue. For the efficient and accurate processing of CT volume data, we use fast algorithms associated with three-dimensional so-called isotropic multiresolution wavelets that implement a redundant, frame-based image encoding without directional preference. Our algorithm identifies textural consistencies by correlating coefficients in the wavelet representation.
