Comparisons of state of the art methods for Left Ventricle Segmentation
16 state of the art methods are compared:
The 16 state-of-the-art segmentation methods are SDD thresholding method

(zhenzhou_threshold_selection_updated.m), Adaptive thresholding (adaptivethreshold.m and

averagefilter.m), Active contour without edge(region_seg.m), Region-based active contour

(local_AC_MS.m and local_AC_UM.m), GM(CMF_Cut.m), Level set (drlse_edge.m), Cross entropy

(minCE1.m), Fuzzy entropy (entropy_fuzzy_threshold1.m), ISO (isodata1.m), Maximum entropy

(maxentropie.m), Otsu (otsu.m), EM (EMSeg.m), K-means (kmeans.m), Soft (fth.m and

im_expand.m), Fuzzy C means ( fcmthresh.m and trapmf_mat.m) and Local thresholding

(niblack.m) respectively.

117 images are used to test the image segmentation methods:
The Cardiac MR images and the benchmark manual contours are from Medical Image

Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI) 2009. In this MATLAB cabinet, the

117 images are from Online_SC_HF_I9,Online_SC_HF_I10, Online_SC_HF_I11,

Online_SC_HYP12, Training_SC_HF_I4,Training_SC_HF_NI3, Training_SC_HF_NI4 and

Training_SC_HF_NI36. The data of the region of interest of these 117 images are integrated

into 117_ROI.mat and the benchmark manual contours corresponding to these images are

integrated into 117_Manual.mat.

APD and DICE are the measures to evaluate the segmentation accuracy. The results will be

writted into 117frame_data.xlsx.

Please Run Demo.m and QuantitativeComparison.m for the comparisons.

The codes are written by ZhenZhou Wang and JingJing Xiong, Please contact for more information.
