Paper Abstract

In this paper a high-speed procedure for motion tracking of endocardium is presented. If a contour is available in the first frame of a sequence, the contours on the subsequent frames are segmented. Deformable active contours is a technique that combine geometry, physics and approximation theory to solve problems with fundamental important into medical image analysis like segmentation, representation and matching of shapes, and tracking of objects in movement. The procedure was implemented on a DSP processor (TMS320C6701) using its hardware characteristics massively. The results are illustrated on a sequence of four-chambers apical images.
