We are developing methods for localized inhomogeneity correction for cardiac LGE-MRI images. The goal is to be able to reduce some of the noise inherent in cardiac LGE-MRI scans to improve clinical diagnoses and statistical comparisons.

Approach, Plan

Our approach for inhomogeneity correction is a gradient function to the image data that normalizes accordingly.

Our plan for the project week is to test our module, and ensure that it meets "Ron's Rules" and develop supporting documentation/examples.


Software for the inhomogeneity correction has been implemented [1]. We have created documentation/tutorial for the module. Lastly, we have updated the acknowledgements section to include the appropriate logos and information. The module is now available as a loadable extension in Slicer 4.
