Cardiovascular Imaging and Image Analysis

Cardiovascular Imaging: Cardiac imaging is a diagnostic radiology that uses medical images to diagnose cardiovascular diseases and to detect the defects in the size and shape of the heart. It is used to diagnose many diseases including:

  • Coronary heart disease.
  • Heart failure or valve problems.
  • Damage caused by a heart attack.
  • Congenital heart defects
  • Pericarditis
  • Cardiac tumors.

Image Analysis: Image analysis includes processing an image into fundamental components to remove important information. Image analysis involves tasks such as finding shapes, removing noise, counting objects, detecting edges and calculating statistics for texture analysis or image quality. Methods used for image processing are:
