Abstract
In this paper, a novel technique is presented for the extraction of features from 3D medical image sequences. This technique involves grayscale segmentation, followed by application of a 3D deformable model algorithm which smooths the data and compensates for drop-out regions in the segmentation. These properties are particularly desirable in the application studied here, which is the extraction of the left ventricle from a 3D ultrasound scan. THe algorithm is shown to produce a good reconstruction of the LV, as well as an accurate measurement of its volume.
