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)
We have developed a new automatic slice-alignment method that employs a combination of knowledge-based algorithm and model based algorithm to determine six planes at the same time. We have also evaluated the effects of the quality of the dictionary used in this method. The results showed that the robustness of slice determination in the proposed method can(More)
