The Cardiac Atlas Project, Progress Report July 2009
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
The Cardiac Atlas Project is a multinational initiative to establish a database of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging studies, together with derived information, in healthy and disease populations. This database will facilitate computational atlases of cardiac function and structure. Probabilistic statistical descriptions of regional wall motion will enable the creation of classifiers and descriptors for different patient groups. Open source software will be provided for the analysis and visualization of the images and derived models of heart shape and function. This talk will report on the current progress and status of the Cardiac Atlas Project, including mechanisms for participation.
