These are raters who participated in the STACOM 2011 LV Segmentation Challenge. They have submitted their segmentation results, which were used to build the initial consensus (see [Suinesiaputra et al., 2014]).
AU - Manually guide-point modeling assisted fitting of cardiac modelThis is an expert-guided segmentation method where a finite element model of the LV was fitted interactively throughout the cardiac frames. It was developed by the University of Auckland, New Zealand. See [Li et al. 2010, Young et al., 2000] for more information about this method.
AO - Contour-constrained optical flow trackingThis method involves manual drawing at the first frame before automatically tracks contour in the subsequent frames by minimizing energy functionals, which consist of optical flow and contour properties constraints [Fahmy et al., 2012]. This algorithm was submitted by the Nile University, Cairo, Egypt group during the 2011 LV Segmentation Challenge.
DS - Block matching algorithmThis method also involves manual drawing at the first frame and the subsequent myocardial contours were detected by using the block-matching technique [Ourselin et al., 2000]. This algorithm was submitted by Diagnostic Inc. during the 2011 LV Segmentation Challenge.
INR - Layered spatio-temporal forests algorithmThe INRIA group in France submitted an algorithm to segment myocardium based on two layers of spatio-temporal decision forests with almost no assumptions on the data nor explicitly specifying the segmentation rules [Margeta et al., 2012]. 4D spatio-temporal features to classification with decision forests were introduced in the first layer for context aware MR intensity standardization and image alignment. The second layer was then used for the final image segmentation. This is a fully automated segmentation algorithm without any user intervention.
SCR - Deformable registration methodThis fully automated method was submitted by Siemens Corporation Research group, in which they have developed an algorithm to register and to segment cardiac MR images without any user intervention. The method is based on inverse consistency of deformable registration to register all frames to the first frame [Jolly et al., 2012]. The segmentation was applied to any frame and propagated to any other frames in the sequence through forward and backward deformation fields.
