Paper Abstract

Magnetic resonance tagging has been shown to be a useful technique for non-invasively measuring the deformation of an in vivo heart. Tagged images appear with a spatially encoded pattern of lines called tag lines that move with the tissue and can be analyzed to reconstruct a description of left ventricular (LV) displacement during a portion of the cardiac cycle. Existing analysis methods require user- defined epicardial and endocardial contours. In this paper we present a method based on edge-preserving regularization techniques for reconstructing dense 2D left ventricular displacement field from tag line position data without prior knowledge of the LV contours. Our methods are demonstrated on both simulated and in vivo data.
