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.

    In this paper, we propose a new variational model to segment an object belonging to a given shape space using the active contour method, a geometric shape prior and the Mumford-Shah functional. The core of our model is an energy functional composed by three complementary terms. The first one is...

    Background: Accurate analysis of CT brain scans is vital for diagnosis and treatment of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). Automatic processing of these CT brain scans could speed up the decision making process, lower the cost of healthcare, and reduce the chance of human error. In this paper, we...

    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...

In state of the art optical flow methods, over-smoothing of flow discontinuities accounts for most of the error. A breakthrough in the performance...

This paper proposes an automatic decision rule for the detection of moving regions. The proposed framework is derived from a perceptual grouping principle, namely the...
