LV Landmark Detection Challenge
As part of the Statistical Atlases and Computational Models (STACOM) of the Heart 2012 workshop, the Cardiac Atlas Project is running a Left Ventricular (LV) Landmark Detection Challenge. The workshop will be held on 5th October 2012 as a MICCAI 2012 workshop in Nice, France.
In this challenge, we invite participants to evaluate their algorithms to automatically detect anatomical landmark points on our cardiac MRI data. A full set of 4D cine-MRI in long-axis and short-axis views from 200 patients are made available for this challenge. The data are randomly divided into 2 sets: training set (100 patients) and validation set (100 patients). The training set contains landmark points that have been manually annotated by analysts.
Your task is to run your automated landmark detection algorithm on the 100 patients from the validation set. The landmark points include mitral valve points on the long-axis view images, right ventricular (RV) insert points on the short-axis images and base to apex central axis points.

The only requirement for this challenge is that the algorithm must be fully automatic.
Note that you don't need to detect all points in the validation data set. We will analyze only points that are submitted. Landmarks that are going to be detected are pre-described in the annotation file (see more about annotation file definition).
