developed for three-dimensional echocardiography can also be applied to
magnetic resonance images. In this study (see
below), both the left ventricle (red borders) and right ventricle (pink borders) have been traced from long and short axis MRI views (seen as thumbprints in the background).
Such surface reconstructions have many potential
- Measurement of ventricular volume and mass
- Visualization of anatomy
- Quantification of 3D shape
- Road-mapping for procedures
- Incorporating anatomic knowledge into image
