Cardiac pathologies are generally associated with regional ventricular dysfunction. Methods for estimating the regional myocardial motion from cardiac CT image data generally ignore the rotational velocities. Reasons for this include the challenges of sparse image deformation clues, low SNR and the low temporal resolution. In the current study we propose a… CONTINUE READING
