Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present a histogram-based approach to the problem of contour tracking on echcardiographic sequences. We improve the classic single-histogram approach by using a dula-histogram technique. Then, we compare different dissimilarity measures between histograms in the specific context of echocardiographic sequences. Finally, we demonstrate the advantage of the Earth Mover's Distance particularly when intensity shifts occur.
