CMRSegTools: an Osirix plugin for myocardial infarct sizing on DE-CMR images

Abstract

Background CMR is an established method for the diagnosis and assessment of myocardial infarction in routine exams. In addition, there has been a growing interest in using infarct size as a surrogate endpoint for clinical trials assessing the efficacy of acute MI reperfusion treatments and MI size is reported to be a stronger predictor of outcome than LVEF and LV volumes[1].Various methods have been proposed for infarct size (IS) measurement without reference standard method and side-by-side comparison among them. The goal was to develop a user-friendly cardiac segmentation toolbox implemented as a plugin in the open-source OsiriX software with a set a commonly proposed semi-automatic algorithms
