Master Thesis project in Medical Image Processing
Image-Based Verification of Parametric Models in Heart Ventricle Volumetry
The goal of my diploma thesis was to compare image-based volume measurements of the left heart ventricle. Quantifying volume is an important issue in heart disease diagnosis. Radiologists investigate computer tomographic (CT) images and look for representative projections containing the left ventricle. Often in radiology, on these projections an ellipsoidal model for the left ventricle is assumed and measured.
My task was to compare this method with more sophisticated image analysis techniques that also lead to volume estimations.
The image to the right shows on a schematic where the left ventricle is situated.
