Abstract
In this paper we present a statistical model-based approach to three-dimensional (3D) analysis of gated SPECT perfusion studies. By means of a 3D Active Shape Model (3D-ASM) segmentation algorithm, delineations of the endo- and epicardial borders of the left ventricle are obtained, in all temporal phases and image slices of the study. Prior knowledge was captured from a training set of cardiac MRI and SPECT studies, from which geometrical (shape) and grey-level (appearance) statistical models were built. From the fitted shape, a truly 3D representation of the left ventricle, a series of global and regional functional parameters can be assessed. A myocardial center surface representation is built on top of which scalar maps of perfusion, thickness or motion can be depicted. Preliminary results were quite encouraging, suggesting that statistical model-based segmentation may serve as a robust technique for routine use.
