Real-time 3D echocardiography can provide accurate left ventricle volume measurement without geometric assumptions with the assist of a robust segmentation algorithm. A new 3D geometric deformable model is introduced for the purpose by combining 3D Gradient vector flow (GVF) and 3D geodesic active contour model. The new model is successfully applied to left ventricle quantification in 3D echocardiography.
