Left Ventricle Segmentation from Heart MDCT
A semi-automatic method for left ventricle segmentation from MDCT exams is presented. It was developed using ITK and custom modules integrated in the MeVisLab platform. A preliminary qualitative evaluation shows that the provided segmentation, without any tweaking or manual edition, is reasonably close to the ideal segmentation as judged by experienced radiology technicians.
