Paper Abstract

As we know that morphology is the technique that based upon set theory and it can be used for binary image processing and gray image processing. The principle and the geometrical meaning of morphological boundary detecting for image were discussed in this paper, and the selecting of structure element was analyzed. Comparison was made between morphological boundary detecting and traditional boundary detecting method, conclusion that morphological boundary detecting method has better compatibility and anti-interference capability was reached. The method was also used for L.V. cineangiograms processing. In this paper we hoped to build up a foundation for automatic detection of L.V. contours based on the features of L.V. cineangiograms and Morphological theory, for the further study of L.V. wall motion abnormalities, because wall motion abnormalities of L.V. due to myocardia ischeamia caused by coronary atherosclerosis is a significant feature of Atherosclerotic coronary heart disease (CHD). An algorithm that based on morphology for L.V. contours extracting was developed in this paper.
