Correlated Regression Feature Learning for Automated Right Ventricle Segmentation
Accurate segmentation of right ventricle (RV) from cardiac magnetic resonance (MR) images can help doctor to robustly quantify the clinical indices including ejection fraction. In this paper, we develop one regression convolutional neural network (RegressionCNN) that a holistic regression model is incorporated with convolutional neural network (CNN) to determine boundary points’ coordinates of RV directly and simultaneously.
A Meshfree Representation for Cardiac Medical Image Computing
The prominent advantage of meshfree method, is the way to build the representation of computational domain, based on the nodal points without any explicit meshing connectivity. Therefore, meshfree method can conveniently process the numerical computation inside interested domains with large deformation or inhomogeneity. In this paper, we adopt the idea of meshfree representation into cardiac medical image analysis in order to overcome the difficulties caused by large deformation and inhomogeneous materials of the heart.
