Paper Abstract

Recently, fuzzy c-Shells algorithms have been proposed for spherical boundary detections. Only a few applications of the Fuzzy c-Shells algorithm have been explored. This paper proposes a new algorithm utilizing the Fuzzy c-Shells approach for detection of the approximate location of the left ventricle. The proposed technique has been successfully applied to 25 2-D magnetic resonance cardiac images and has located the left ventricles.
