Manual quantitative analysis of cardiac left ventricular function using Multislice CT and MR is arduous because of the large data volume. In this paper, we present a 3-D active shape model (ASM) for semiautomatic segmentation of cardiac CT and MR volumes, without the requirement of retraining the underlying statistical shape model. A fuzzy c-means based(More)
Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) is a promising method for noninvasive coronary artery imaging. The interesting features of coronary MRA are its non-invasive nature, the absence of ionizing radiation, and the possibility of imaging the coronary arteries without exogenous contrast. Moreover, three-dimensional volume information and tomographic image(More)
A 25-year-old female was referred to our clinic with episodes of palpitations, chest pain and near-collapse. These episodes began during pregnancy and continued after delivery. An exercise ECG showed a nonsustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) with right axis deviation and right bundle branch block; similar VTs were inducible during electrophysiological(More)
