Paper Abstract

Reconstruction of the heartbeat is an useful tool to detect and diagnose some pathologies. However, this process represents a challenge because the heart is a moving organ inside a moving body, so that, either similar regions are hard to identify or some regions appear and disappear constantly. This article presents a reconstruction method of the right ventricle using SURF points in irregular regions. The SURF points, invariant to image scale and rotation, provide robust features of a right ventricle slice that can then be traced to the other slices. By using such points and then, using a nonrigid registration, it possible to perform a volumetrical reconstruction of these images.
