Matching Sparse Sets of Cardiac Image Cross-Sections Using Large Deformation Diffeomorphic Metric Mapping Algorithm
The purpose of this study is to illustrate the application of large deformation diffeomorphic metric mapping to perform registration among sparsely sampled cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data. To evaluate the performance of this method, we use two sets of data: 1) contours that are generated from sparsely sampled left ventricular sections and extracted from short axis cardiac MRI of patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and 2) left ventricular surface mesh that is generated from higher resolution cardiac computed tomography image. We present two different discrepancy criteria, one based on a measure that is embedded in the dual of a reproducing kernel Hilbert space of functions for curves and the other is based on a geometric soft matching distance between a surface and a curve.
