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 model

    This 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 tracking

    This 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_snapshot

    DS - Block matching algorithm

    This 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_snapshot

    INR - Layered spatio-temporal forests algorithm

    The 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_snapshot

    SCR - Deformable registration method

    This 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.
