Shape-Based Tracking of Nonrigid Heart Wall Motion from 2D and 3D Image Sequences

This research is ultimately aimed at tracking the non-rigid 4- dimensional (3 spatial dimensions plus time) movement of points on the left ventricular wall of the heart. Makes particlular use of differential geometric models. Some work aimed at integrating MR- based phase-velocity images with the shape- based approach will also be discussed. Principal Investigators: Pengcheng Shi, John McEachen, Francois Meyer, Jim Duncan
