A Novel Myocardium Segmentation Approach Based on Neutrosophic Active Contour Model

Authors: Yanhui Guo, Guo-Qing Du, Jing-Yi Xue, Rong Xia, Yu-hang Wang

Automatic delineation of the myocardium in echocardiography can assist radiologists to diagnosis heart problems. However, it is still challenging to distinguish myocardium from other tissue due to a low signal-to-noise ratio, low contrast, vague boundary, and speckle noise. The purpose of this study is to automatically detect myocardium region in left ventricle myocardial contrast echocardiography (LVMCE) images to help radiologists’ diagnosis and further measurement on infarction size.
