Comparison of Cardiac Motion Across Subjects Using Non-rigid Registration
We present a novel technique that enables a direct quantitative comparison of cardiac motion derived from 4D MR image sequences to be made either within or across patients. This is achieved by registering the images that describe the anatomy of both subjects and then using the computed transformation to map the motion fields of each subject into the same coordinate system. The motion fields are calculated by registering each of the frames in a sequence of tagged short-axis MRI images to the enddiastolic frame using a non-rigid registration technique based on multi-level free-form deformations. The end-diastolic untagged short-axis images acquired shortly after the tagged images were obtained are registered using non-rigid registration to determine an inter-subject mapping, which is used to transform the motion fields of one of the subjects into the coordinate system of the other, which is thus our reference coordinate system. The results show the transformed myocardial motion fields of...
