Tissue tagging using magnetic resonance (MR) imaging has enabled quantitative noninvasive analysis of motion and deformation in vivo. One method for MR tissue tagging is Spatial Modulation of Magnetization (SPAMM). Manual detection and tracking of tissue tags by visual inspection remains a time-consuming and tedious process. The authors have developed an interactively guided semi-automated method of detecting and tracking tag intersections in cardiac MR images. A template matching approach… CONTINUE READING
