This article surveys deformable models, a promising and vigorously researched computer-assisted medical image analysis technique. Among model-based techniques, deformable models offer a unique and powerful approach to image analysis that combines geometry, physics, and approximation theory. They have proven to be effective in segmenting, matching, and tracking anatomic structures by exploiting (bottom-up) constraints derived from the image data together with (top-down) a priori knowledge about… Expand

Sparse Deformable Models with Application to Cardiac Motion Analysis
TLDR
This work introduces a new family of deformable models that are inspired from compressed sensing, a technique for efficiently reconstructing a signal based on its sparseness in some domain, and applies it to the analysis of cardiac motion using tagged magnetic resonance imaging (tMRI), where the automated tagging line tracking results are very noisy due to the poor image quality.

Shape-Constrained Deformable Models and Applications in Medical Imaging
TLDR
The approach to shape parametrization and the concept of “Simulated Search” that the authors use to train boundary detection are described and it is shown how shape-constrained deformable models allow to address clinical applications in cardiology and neurology. Expand
A Quality – of – fit Function for Evaluating Deformable Model – based Segmentations of Anatomical Structures in Medical Data
Localising shapes in medical images is an important, but difficult problem due to the tremendous anatomical variability and the variation in image quality. Hence, segmentation often involves variantsExpand
Modelling and Tracking of Deformable Structures in Medical Images
TLDR
The main idea is to exploit a priori knowledge of shape that exists in ASM and introduce new knowledge about the shape variation over time to define a new more stable method, allowing the reliable detection of structures whose shape changes considerably in time. Expand
Segmentation of Medical Image Objects Using Deformable Shape Loci
TLDR
An approach to model-based image segmentation, called deformable shape loci (DSL), that has been successfully applied to 2D MR slices of the brain ventricle and CT slices of abdominal organs is described. Expand
Oriented active shape models
TLDR
This paper presents a novel strategy called Oriented Active Shape Models (OASM) in an attempt to overcome the following three major limitations of ASM: poor delineation accuracy, the requirement of a large number of landmarks, and the problem of sensitivity to search range. Expand
