This paper presents a novel methodology for the segmentation of the LV in three-dimensional (3-D) echocardiographic images based on the probabilistic data association filter (PDAF). The proposed methodology begins by initializing a 3- D deformable model either semiautomatically, with user input, or automatically, and it comprises the following feature hierarchical approach: 1) edge detection in the vicinity of the surface (lowlevel features); 2) edge grouping to obtain potential LV surface patches (mid-level features); and 3) patch filtering using a shapePDAF framework (high-level features). This method provides good performance accuracy in 20 echocardiographic volumes, and compares favorably with the state-of-the-art segmentation methodologies proposed in the recent literature.

In a clinical setup, there are several advantages involved in solving this problem in echocardiography. This includes the increase of patient throughput and the reduction of interuser variability in the LV delineation procedure. Although other imaging techniques, such as MRI and CT, provide images with better spatial resolution, echocardiography is still one of the most preferred modalities due to its temporal resolution, versatility, and low cost. However, automatic segmentation in echocardiography is not a simple task since it raises several challenges. First, the US images may contain more than one anatomical structure, meaning that it is necessary to correctly identify the region of interest (i.e., initialization procedure). Second, the borders of those structures may not always be present and they are often difficult to locate due to misleading edges and background noise. This problem is particularly accentuated in echocardiographic images, characterized by low signal-to-noise ratio, weak echoes, scattering, echo dropouts, and presence of speckle (i.e., cluttered background and outliers).Deformable models have been one of the most promising approaches to the segmentation in echocardiographic images. However, they still face two major issues. First, the initialization has a significant influence in the segmentation. This means that different initializations may provide different final shape estimates, introducing user-dependent bias. An automatic initialization solves this problem by guaranteeing that, for a specific volume, the final segmentations are consistent. Second, the presence of clutter hampers the accuracy of the segmentations. Most approaches do not have the ability to identify which image features (e.g., edge points) actually belong to the object of interest and which belong to the background noise or neighboring structures. This may cause the final segmentation to be poorer since erroneous edges have a negative impact in the adaptation of the deformable model. These problems have been the subject of intense research in the past decades and are the main concern of this paper. This paper proposes a new algorithm based on deformable models, tailored to perform the segmentation of the LV in threedimensional (3-D) echocardiographic images targeted to account for the difficulties mentioned previously, i.e., initialization and presence of outliers and cluttered background. To achieve this goal, we propose

The methodology is based on the use of a probabilistic data association filter, originally proposed in the context of control theory, to improve the detection of the ventricle boundary. The proposed segmentation system was coupled with an automatic initialization method to produce a fully automatic segmentation procedure that achieved competitive results when compared to a semiautomatic initialization based on space-carving. The results show that the proposed system performs well in a varied set of echocardiographic volumes. It also shows that the accuracy of the segmentations is competitive with other stateof-the-art works.
