Echocardiography

View this topic in
An echocardiogram, often referred to in the medical community as a cardiac ECHO or simply an ECHO, is a sonogram of the heart (it is not abbreviated as ECG, which in medicine usually refers to an electrocardiogram). Also known as a cardiac ultrasound, it uses standard ultrasound techniques to image two-dimensional slices of the heart. (Wikipedia.org)

LV SEGMENTATION FROM 3D ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY USING FUZZY FEATURES AND A MULTILEVEL FFD MODEL

Ping Yan; Albert Sinusas; James S. Duncan 2007 4th IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging: From Nano to Macro, 2007

In this paper, we propose a method for 3D left ventricle (LV) segmentation from echocardiography. This method defines an 'active contour' on a multilevel cubic B-spline formulated grid. Moving the active contour to the boundary is performed by minimizing an energy function, which is defined by fuzzy feature information and multilevel free form deformation model (MFFD). Several echocardiographic LV segmentation ...


Detecting heart wall boundaries by tracking features in an echocardiogram sequence

C. -H. H. Chu; E. J. Delp Proceedings. Computers in Cardiology 1988, 1988

An approach to extracting information from an echocardiogram sequence to the endocardial boundary as the heart undergoes deformation in a cardiac cycle is presented. Image velocities used as attributes of the edge segments are estimated by the image-flow approach, which relates the spatial intensity gradient to the temporal gradient. One component of the velocity can be directly computed, whereas the ...


Does body surface potential mapping (bspm) predict functional recovery in chronic ischemic myocardium after revascularization?

H. J. Bruns; A. Samol; P. Stolz; T. Schawe; F. Wenzelburger; T. D. Tjan; H. H. Scheld; G. Breithardt; T. Wichter; C. Vahlhaus Computers in Cardiology, 2005, 2005

Irreversibly dysfunctional myocardium is electrically characterized by decreased amplitudes and prolonged duration of local electrograms. We investigated whether ECGs from body surface correlate with epicardial electrograms. A 120-channel body surface potential mapping (BSPM) was performed in 24 patients before CABG. During CABG epicardial mapping was performed. For all BSPM leads the Q-amplitude and QR-duration were measured and correlated to epicardial ...


Prediction of cardiac resynchronization therapy response by means of 3D trajectory assessment of the coronary sinus lead

C. Corsi; D. Turco; C. Tomasi; M. Margheri; C. Lamberti; S. Severi 2012 Computing in Cardiology, 2012

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is an effective treatment for chronic symptomatic systolic heart failure with cardiac dyssynchrony, but about one- third of patients do not respond favorably to the therapy. We tested the hypothesis that changes in the movements of coronary sinus (CS) electrode tip during the cardiac cycle, induced by the start of biventricular pacing could be related to ...


A fast and accurate tracking algorithm of left ventricles in 3D echocardiography

Lin Yang; Bogdan Georgescu; Yefeng Zheng; David J. Foran; Dorin Comaniciu 2008 5th IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging: From Nano to Macro, 2008

Tracking of left ventricles in 3D echocardiography is a challenging topic because of the poor quality of ultrasound images and the speed consideration. In this paper, a fast and accurate learning based 3D tracking algorithm is presented. A novel one-step forward prediction is proposed to generate the motion prior using motion manifold learning. Collaborative trackers are introduced to achieve both ...
