Automatic Left Ventricle Segmentation in Cardiac MRI Using Topological Stable-State Thresholding and Region Restricted Dynamic Programming

Academic Radiology, 05/16/2012

An automatic method using topological stable–state thresholding and region restricted dynamic programming has been proposed to segment left ventricle in short–axis cardiac magnetic resonance images (MRI). Evaluation results indicate that the proposed segmentation method can improve the accuracy and robust of left ventricle segmentation. The proposed segmentation approach shows the better performance and has great potential in improving the accuracy of computer–aided diagnosis systems in cardiovascular diseases.
