These are challenges of computational modelling, segmentation and computer-aided diagnostic for cardiovascular problems. The Cardiac Atlas Project has been actively working with several research groups to create exciting research activities to solve a specific problem with common data set. As such, new development of computational algorithms can be developed, tested and compared using the same data set.

More cardiac challenges are hosted by annual STACOM challenges: http://stacom.cardiacatlas.org.

Important

Each challenge has unique requirements, process, criteria and terms of agreement to join. Please read carefully each challenge descriptions. If you are interested, then do not hesitate to contact the challenge organisers.


LV Segmentation Challenge

LV Segmentation Challenge

One major challenge for developing a 4D segmentation algorithm is the lack of available large set of ground truth that are defined for the whole cardiac frames and slices. Initiated from the 2011 LV Segmentation Challenge that was held for the...
