Paper Abstract

Cardiac boundary extraction on echocardiographic images is essential for quantification of cardiac function. Tracing the endocardial boundaries on the end-diastolic and end-systolic images allows the computation of clinically important measures such as ejection rate. It is a clinical need for automatically detecting the borders. In this paper, we proposed a new approach for cardiac boundary extraction on echocardiographic images by directed graph. In this approach, we spread the cardiac image in the circular direction. The spread image is mapping to a directed graph. The shortest path is found by the dynamic programing algorithm. From the implemented results, we can obtain pretty good approximation for cardiac boundary extraction.
