PURPOSE For accurate evaluation of myocardial perfusion on computed tomography images, precise identification of the myocardial borders of the left ventricle (LV) is mandatory. In this article, we propose a method to detect the contour of LV myocardium automatically and accurately. METHODS Our detection method is based on active shape model. For precise(More)
OBJECTIVES Automatic slice alignment is important for easier operation and shorter examination times in cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations. We propose a new automatic slice alignment method for six cardiac planes (short-axis, vertical long-axis, horizontal long-axis, 4-chamber, 2-chamber, and 3-chamber views). MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
