OBJECTIVE Accurate and reproducible assessment of myocardial infarction is important for treatment planning in patients with ischemic heart disease. This study describes a novel method to quantify myocardial infarction by semi-automatic delineation of hyperenhanced myocardium in delayed contrast enhanced (DE) magnetic resonance (MR) images. DESIGN The proposed method automatically detects the hyperenhanced tissue by first determining the signal intensity of non-enhanced myocardium. A fast… CONTINUE READING
