Paper Abstract

Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Image (CMRI) is a significant assistant for the cardiovascular disease clinical diagnosis. The segmentation of right ventricle (RV) is essential for cardiac function evaluation, especially for RV function measurement. Automatic RV segmentation is difficult due to the intensity inhomogeneity and the irregular shape. In this paper, we propose an automatic RV segmentation framework. Firstly, we use the anisotropic diffusion to filter the CMRI. And then, the endocardium is extracted by the simplified pulse coupled neural network (SPCNN) segmentation. At last, the morphologic processors are used to obtain the epicardium. The experiment results show that our method obtains a good performance for both the endocardium and the epicardium segmentation.
