Key Investigators

  • Danielle Pace (MIT)

  • Polina Golland (MIT)

Project Description

  • We have developed an interactive segmentation algorithm for cardiac MR images from patients with severe congenital heart disease, in which the user manually segments a few short-axis slices and the remainder is segmented automatically using patch-based segmentation (Pace et al, MICCAI 2015)
Objective Approach and Plan Progress and Next Steps
  • Continue improving the method, especially focusing on correctly segmenting thin walls of the heart when few slices are manually segmented
  • Continue investigating algorithm modifications to enhance / correctly segment the thin walls.
  • Worked on integrating new "thin wall" features to improve thin wall detection
