Evaluating myocardial viability is an important prognostic factor in the follow-up of infarctions. Delayed Enhancement (DE) perfusion images in MRI have been shown to be very valuable in the evaluation of myocardial viability [1]. Visual interpretation is the most commonly used method. This study aims to segment the (DE) images prior to the estimation of(More)
Automated extraction of quantitative parameters from cardiac magnetic resonance images is crucial for the management of patients with myocardial infarct. This paper proposes a postprocessing procedure to jointly analyze Cine and delayed-enhanced (DE) acquisitions, in order to provide an automatic quantification of myocardial contraction and enhancement(More)
PURPOSE To assess regional ventricular function via an accurate and automated definition of functional parameters. MATERIALS AND METHODS An automated method is proposed that estimates reliable regional normalized mean transition times (F(mc)) and mean radial velocities (V(m)) from cine images. This approach combines a quantitative parametric imaging(More)
