Abstract

An algorithm is described for delineation and three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of the left ventricular (LV) cavity boundary from echocardiographic images. The algorithm combines advanced image analysis and neural network techniques with a priori knowledge about LV shapes. Minimal user interaction is required to initiate the process which results in computer-generated outlines of the LV. Laboratory tests with dog hearts compare the algorithm to a conventional method based on endocardial outlines by an expert. LV volume and shape comparisons are assessed.
