Quantifying regional left ventricular function using spatio-temporal tracking techniques

Abstract:

Increasingly, diagnosis of cardiac disease, relies on computer processing of images to aid decision making. In this thesis, we use echocardiography, which is the most widely used cardiac imaging modality to study the motion of the left ventricle.

Currently, clinical reporting of echocardiography examinations is operator-dependent and largely qualitative. Commercially available software does not track the left ven- tricle. Also, it does not provide quantification of regional functio...
