Active Fourier Contour Applied to Real Time 3D Ultrasound of the Heart

  title={Active Fourier Contour Applied to Real Time 3D Ultrasound of the Heart},
  author={George D. Stetten and Rebekah A. Drezek},
  journal={Int. J. Image Graphics},
We describe an active contour based on the elliptical Fourier series, and its application to matrix-array ultrasound. Matrix-array, or Real Time 3D (RT3D), ultrasound is a relatively new medical imaging modality that scans a 3D-volume electronically without physically moving the transducer, allowing for real-time continuous 3D imaging of the heart. With the goal of automatically tracking the heart wall, an active contour has been developed using the elliptical Fourier series to find… CONTINUE READING
