Fractal dimension as a method of segmenting cardiac images

Document Type

Conference Proceeding

Date of Original Version



Cardiac magnetic resonance (MR) images were segmented by the use of fractal concepts. The method utilized is a robust two-dimensional extension of the previous work of T. Lundahl et al. (IEEE Trans. on Medical Imaging, vol. MI-5, no. 3, 1986). The results show that this technique can provide a method to extract cardiac borders from MR images in situations where conventional approaches fail.
