Contour Definition and Tracking in Cardiac Imaging Through the Integration of Knowledge and Image Evidence

Abstract

The main contribution of this paper is the use of simple processing techniques, incorporated in a new multistage approach, to automatically delineate left ventricle contours. Another contribution is the proposal of the centerline distances for contour comparison, which promises a more accurate measurement than the common method, based on the distance to the… (More)
