Shape Guided Segmentation of Cardiac Boundaries

Shape Guided Segmentation of Cardiac Boundaries

Prior shape information has been shown to be invaluable for segmenting cardiac boundaries. We develop new methods of exploiting such prior information to guide the segmentation by using techniques of machine learning or formulating the segmentation problem to fit our requirements in segmentation of 4D cardiac data.
