Abstract
The auxiliary diagnosis based on three-dimensional (3D) modeling techniques can improve the diagnosis efficiency of heart disease. In this paper, we propose a new method for the 3D modeling of left ventricle. The novel approach incorporatestwo key points: one is LV endocardium segmentation via the simplified pulse-coupled neural network (SPCNN), and the other is interpolation between slices. To ensure the accuracy of modeling, we firstly use the cubic spline interpolation to increase the resolution between slices. Then, the endocardial contours of all slices are automatically obtained based on SPCNN. Finally, Marching Cubes (MC) algorithm is implemented to reconstruct the LV endocardial surface. We test the new method on four setsof 3D data and obtain effective results. The APD and ODM are respectively 1.7950mm and 91.34% for the endocardium segmentation, which makes the surface reconstruction of LV endocardium accurate andsmooth.
