We present a new method to shape-based segmentation of deformable anatomical structures in medical images and valid ate this approach by detecting and tracking the endocardial bor der in an echographic image sequence. To this end, a global prior knowledge of the endocardial contour is captured by a protot ype template with a set of admissible deformations to take into a ccount its inherent natural variability over time. In this ap proach, the data likelihood model rely on an accurate… CONTINUE READING
