During revascularisation procedures repeated left ventriculography using iodine contrast materials may be an unnecessary burden on left ventricular performance. We therefore Investigated in 10 patients the diagnostic quality of low close ventriculography using a video image processor which enhanced digest at left ventricular images. It is concluded that low dose ventriculography using up to 70% dilution of contrast can be diagnostic in 90% of all cases, depending of the side of interest.

    The left ventricle tracking in planar scintigraphic images is an important step to study the coronary state. However, it is not as simple as we thought, because of the bad quality of these images. The study of the related work showed that classic methods based on low level image characteristics...

    The cancer cells are multiplicative in nature. Doctors face difficulties in counting the white blood cells (WBCs) at a particular stage due to crowding of cells. This paper proposes the robust segmentation algorithm that can reliably separate touching cells. Segmentation is the main important...
