Abstract: In this paper,an automated method of boundary detection of the left ventricle (LV) is proposed. The method uses a watershed transform and morphological operation to locate the region containing the LV,then performs snake deformation with a multiscale directional edge map for the detection of the endocardial boundary of the LV.
