Paper Abstract

We present a novel continuous Max-Flow based method to segment the inner left ventricular wall from 3D trans-esophageal echocardiography image sequences, which minimizes an energy functional encoding two Fisher-Tippett distributions and a geometrical constraint in form of a Euclidean distance map in a numerically efficient and accurate way. After initialization the method is fully automatic and is able to perform at up to 10Hz making it available for image-guided interventions. Results are shown on 4D TEE data sets from 18 patients with pathological cardiac conditions and the speed of the algorithm is assessed under a variety of conditions.
