Myocardial Border Tracking in M-Mode Echocardiograms Using Joint Process Estimation

L.X. Dong, G. Pelle, M. Unser, Y. Brahimi, P. Brun

Proceedings of the 1990 IEEE Conference on Computers in Cardiology, Chicago IL, USA, September 23-26, 1990, pp. 367-370.



A sequential approach to the detection of myocardial borders in M-mode echocardiograms is introduced. Initial border estimates are obtained from a cross-correlation detector. They are then improved by an adaptive lattice-form joint process predictor. Alternatively, a physiological constraint is used to improve the detection of the endocardium during systole. A least squares algorithm is proposed to update recursively the correlation templates in order to track their temporal variations.
