In this study, we propose an automatic method to extract the heart volume from the cardiac positron emission tomography (PET) transmission images. The method combines the automatic 3D segmentation of the transmission image using Markov random fields (MRFs) to surface extraction using deformable models. Deformable models were automatically initialized using(More)
In this study, we applied an iterative independent component analysis (ICA) method for the separation of cardiac tissue components (myocardium, right, and left ventricle) from dynamic positron emission tomography (PET) images. Previous phantom and animal studies have shown that ICA separation extracts the cardiac structures accurately. Our goal in this(More)
