Assessment of cardiac function using imaging techniques requires accurate identiication of borders. We have developed a semi-automatic method for boundary detection of echocardiographic images. Our method combines morphological image analysis techniques with a second derivative operator, namely Laplican of Gaussian. Morphological ltering is used to reduce noise and increase contrast of the image. Results of second order ltering is used to locate edge points, as well as incorporate with… CONTINUE READING
