Paper Abstract

The visualization and comparison of local deformation from 3D image sequences is of critical importance in understanding the etiology of Ischemic cardiac disease. In this paper we describe a framework to combine our previous fast spherical harmonic surface alignment algorithm with a new local special surface reconstruction method to reconstruct the surface of LV with Ischaemic cardiac disease. Our new surface computational model allows people to extract the valuable ischemic tissues behavior from the dynamic shape. We have demonstrated our approaches by the experiments on cardiac MRI. A brief description of motivation is put forth, as well as an overview of the approaches and some initial results are described.
