Automated Tag Detection

Tagged MRI [4, 30] is an excellent technique for measuring tissue deformations. For the deformation to be quantified, however, the tags must be identified and tracked through the image sequence. Tag identification and tracking is the most time consuming step in the analysis of tagged MR images because most techniques require that the myocardium is segmented from the background before the tags are identified and tracked. This segmentation requires user interaction in each image in the study.
