Abstract

A new computerized method has been developed for detecting left ventricular (LV) endocardial border imaged by real-time 3D echo (RT3DE). The initial condition was manually established for the first slice and the solution obtained, solving `Hamilton-Jacoby' type equation, was a contour line corresponding with boundary between LV cavity and LV endocardium. The steady state solution was used as the initial condition for the next slice. This mathematical model was applied to sequences of segments of human hearts imaged by RT3DE.
