Abstract

We have developed an interactively guided semi-automated method of detecting and tracking cardiac tags. A template matching approach combined with a novel adaptation of active contour modeling permits rapid analysis of MR cardiac SPAMM image. We have validated our technique using MR SPAMM images of a silicone gel phantom. Cardiac SPAMM images of normal volunteers and diseased patients have been evaluated using our technique.
