Computational cardiac atlases: from patient to population and back

Alistair A. Young, Alejandro F. Frangi
2009 Experimental Physiology  
These methods facilitate statistical analysis of regional heart shape and wall motion characteristics across population groups, via the application of parametric mathematical modelling tools.  ...  Efficient and robust statistical representations of cardiac morphology and morphodynamics can thereby be obtained, enabling quantitative analysis of images based on such representations.  ...  White arrows in the end-systole images show corresponding regional areas of wall motion abnormality with the automated detection.  ...

Automated border detection in three-dimensional echocardiography: principles and promises

K.Y. E. Leung, J. G. Bosch
2010 European Journal of Echocardiography  
Several automated border detection approaches for three-dimensional echocardiography have been developed in recent years, allowing quantification of a range of clinically important parameters.  ...  In this review, the background and principles of these approaches and the different classes of methods are described from a practical perspective, as well as the research trends to achieve a robust method  ...  If applied to cardiac images, statistical models of the cardiac motion may be used as a constraint instead. 45 Since optical flow allows a seamless integration of scaling and shearing, the method can  ...

Left ventricular function and perfusion from gated SPECT perfusion images: an integrated method

T L Faber, C D Cooke, R D Folks, J P Vansant, K J Nichols, E G DePuey, R I Pettigrew, E V Garcia
1999 Journal of Nuclear Medicine  
This method is a logical extension of the results of a standard perfusion quantification technique; thus, it allows integration of perfusion and functional information.  ...  A new technique for computing left ventricular function, including left ventricular volumes, mass and ejection fraction, has been developed.  ...  On short-axis MR slices, myocardial thickness ranged from 10.2 ±.5 mm at the chordal level of the posterior wall to 10.4 ±1.8 mm at the papillary muscle level of the septal wall. Also, Byrd et al.  ...
