Paper Abstract

In order to extract the information content of cardiac computed tomography scans we have devloped quantitative image processing methods for the delineation of myocardial boundaries. The computer generated images are displayed as iso-CT contour plots and CT number line section plots to allow for quantitative assessment of the rate of contrast medium perfusion and washout. From statistical criteria established in computer processed images, objective and reproducible sizing of myocardial infarctions can be made. Another application of the computer to cardiac CT scans enables myocardial wall motion measurements to be made as a function of position.
