For a number of cardiac procedures like the treatments of ventricular tachycardia (VT), coronary artery disease (CAD) and heart failure (HF) both anatomical as well as vitality information about the left ventricular myocardium are required. To this end, two images for the anatomical and functional information, respectively, must be acquired and analyzed, e.g. using two different 3D MR protocols. To enable automatic analysis, a workflow has been proposed which allows to integrate the vitality… CONTINUE READING
