Segmentation in Echocardiographic Images
Echocardiography, ultrasonography of the living heart, has become an important basic tool of diagnosis, treatment evaluation, and research in cardiology. It has achieved a prominent place among the other cardiac imaging modalities for many practical and safety reasons. Since it is basically a pulse-echo imaging system it has all the advantages of the ultrasonic imaging techniques which were described in Chapter 1. Another important reason for its success is that the information it provides is helpful in understanding the mechanisms and evaluating the status and causes of cardiovascular disease in patients. It also provides anatomical information in terms of the heart chambers and their sizes.
