Radiation dose to cardiac substructures is related to radiation-induced heart disease. However, substructures are not considered in radiation therapy planning (RTP) due to poor visualization on CT. Therefore, we developed a novel deep learning (DL) pipeline leveraging MRI's soft tissue contrast coupled with CT for state-of-the-art cardiac substructure segmentation requiring a single, non-contrast CT input.

Accurate segmentation of the left ventricle (LV) from cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an important step in the reliable assessment of cardiac function in cardiovascular disease patients. Seve...
Segmentation of anatomical structures of the heart from cardiac magnetic resonance images (MRI) has a significant impact on the quantitative analysis of the cardiac contractile function. Although deep...
With the rapid development of image scanning techniques and visualization software, whole slide imaging (WSI) is becoming a routine diagnostic method. Accelerating clinical diagnosis from pathology im...
Tagged MR images provide an effective way for regional analysis of the myocardium strain. A reliable myocardium strain analysis requires both correct segmentation and accurate motion tracking of the m...
(1) Demonstrate feasibility of electrocardiogram-gated computed tomography with coronary angiography (E-CTA) in treatment planning for mediastinal lymphoma and (2) Assess whether inclusion of cardiac ...
Because the diagnostic criteria for prostate cancer are different in the peripheral and the transition zone, prostate segmentation is needed for any computer-aided diagnosis system aimed a...
In recent years, the lysine analogs tranexamic acid (TXA) has gained wide use in cardiac surgery as a blood-sparing agent. However, the safety of the drug and its impact on overall outcome...
Cardiac CT allows the assessment of the heart and of the coronary arteries by use of ionising radiation. Although radiation exposure was significantly reduced in recent years, further decr...
Assessing the volume of the liver before surgery, predicting the volume of liver remaining after surgery, detecting primary or secondary lesions in the liver parenchyma are common applicat...
Patients undergoing electrophysiology studies (EPS) and cardiac ablation procedure for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias may be at increased risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) during or...
Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
Striated muscle cells found in the heart. They are derived from cardiac myoblasts (MYOBLASTS, CARDIAC).
Precursor cells destined to differentiate into cardiac myocytes (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC).
A group of cardiac arrhythmias in which the cardiac contractions are not initiated at the SINOATRIAL NODE. They include both atrial and ventricular premature beats, and are also known as extra or ectopic heartbeats. Their frequency is increased in heart diseases.
Compression of the heart by accumulated fluid (PERICARDIAL EFFUSION) or blood (HEMOPERICARDIUM) in the PERICARDIUM surrounding the heart. The affected cardiac functions and CARDIAC OUTPUT can range from minimal to total hemodynamic collapse.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Standard antiretroviral therapy (ART) consists of the combination of at least three antiretroviral (ARV) drugs to maximally suppress the HIV virus and stop the progression of HIV disease. Huge reductions have been seen in rates of death and suffering whe...
