Semi-automatic segmentation of fetal cardiac cavities: progress towards an automated fetal echocardiogram.

OBJECTIVE To develop a novel application of a tool for semi-automatic volume segmentation and adapt it for analysis of fetal cardiac cavities and vessels from heart volume datasets. METHODS We studied retrospectively virtual cardiac volume cycles obtained with spatiotemporal image correlation (STIC) from six fetuses with postnatally confirmed diagnoses… CONTINUE READING
