Scar Tissue Evaluation in the Left Ventricular Endocardial Wall Using Pixel-Based Concept

EasyChair Preprint no. 9004

7 pagesDate: October 5, 2022


Scar tissue is an identified cause for the development of malignant ventricular arrhythmias in patients of myocardial infarction, which ultimately leads to cardiac death, a fatal outcome. The scar formation is an irreversible process of the formation of dead muscle cells that is related to the blockage of a coronary artery. Here, we present a framework to find the possible scar tissue location on the left ventricular (LV) endocardium wall using computed tomography (CT) with delayed-enhancement images by implementing a pixel-based concept. We performed automated LV segmentation to find the LV endocardial wall, extracted the pixel value of the endocardial wall for each image in the sequence, performed morphological operations and marked the particular regions where is the more possible region of the scar tissue on the endocardial wall of LV. This proposed methodology will help in a better understanding of scar tissue remodeling and ways to improve LV function.
