Whole heart segmentation of 3D ultrasound (US), also referred to as echocardiography or simply echo, is useful in cardiac functional analysis to achieve quantitative diagnostic information of the heart. However, characteristics of US imaging such as limited field-of-view, artifacts and inconsistent intensity distribution makes automated approaches a challenge. In this paper, we present a framework for automatic whole heart segmentation from 3D echo. This work is motivated by the new technology… CONTINUE READING
