Quantitative assessment of LV function and volumes with 3-slice segmentation of cine SSFP short axis images: our experience

Abstract

Background Cardiac MRI is the gold standard for assessing cardiac function, but requires contour tracing of the left ventricular (LV) myocardium through multiple cine steadystate free precession (SSFP) short axis images. Despite advancements in semi-automated software, contour detection and manual readjustments of multiple slices throughout the cardiac cavity remains a tedious process. Our goal is to assess LV functional parameters using 3slice segmentations in comparison to conventional multi-slice segmentation in patients with a wide range of pathologies.
