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)

Age-dependency of left ventricular shape measured from real-time 3D echocardiographic images

F. Maffessanti; L. Sugeng; M. Takeuchi; L. Weinert; V. Mor-Avi; R. M. Lang; E. G. Caiani 2008 Computers in Cardiology, 2008

Combined assessment of left ventricular (LV) shape and function could provide new insights into the process of LV remodeling. Real-time 3D echocardiography (RT3DE) allows rapid and accurate semi-automated extraction of LV endocardial surfaces. Our aims were to quantify LV morphology both globally, using conical (C) and spherical (S) indexes, and locally, studying the mean curvature, in a large set of ...


Real-time 3D echocardiographic data analysis for left ventricular volume estimation

C. Corsi; C. Lamberti; A. Sarti; A. Travaglini; T. Shiota; J. D. Thomas Computers in Cardiology 2000. Vol.27 (Cat. 00CH37163), 2000

A new computerized semi-automatic method for left ventricular chamber segmentation is presented. The left ventricle is imaged by real-time three- dimensional echocardiography. This real-time data acquisition method allows accurate evaluation of chamber size and shape, even in case there are cavities with irregular geometry. The surface detection model is based on a partial differential equation that propagates interfaces with curvature ...


Detection of echocardiographic left ventricle boundaries using neural networks

I. A. Hunter; J. J. Soraghan; J. Christie; T. S. Durrani Proceedings of Computers in Cardiology Conference, 1993

Presents a new implementation of the radial search algorithm for the detection of left ventricle boundaries in short axis mid-papillary muscle echocardiographic images, using two cascaded artificial neural networks and a snake energy minimising function to create the final contour. The neural networks are used as statistical classifiers to give a probability measure of their classifications


Model-based, knowledge-based epicardial boundary detector

G. Montilla; C. Roux; V. Barrios; V. Torrealba; N. Rangel; V. Subacius; L. Miliani; C. Vasquez Proceedings of Computers in Cardiology Conference, 1993

A method was developed to detect the ventricle wall for the parasternal short axis view in two-dimensional echocardiography. The ventricular shape is modeled with a very simple parametric closed curve: an ellipse defined by four parameters. A genetic algorithm (GA) guides the elliptical shape and its position to find an optimum result. It minimizes one border dependent function, obtained after ...


Quantitative assessment of mitral regurgitation by automated contrast 2D echocardiography

S. Zhang; J. P. Marques de Sa; M. Guerreiro; C. Abreu-Lima [1992] Proceedings Fifth Annual IEEE Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems, 1992

Describes some approaches to the adaptive detection of microbubbles in contrast 2D echocardiograms and mathematical descriptions of microbubble characteristic movement patterns for quantitative assessment of mitral regurgitation (MR). A hierarchical linear classifier was designed by using features selected from the descriptions for distinguishing 4-class MR. With 202 image sequences, the classifier's performance was validated by using substitution and rotation methods ...
