Abstract: We present a novel method for tracking myocardial motion
from volumetric ultrasound data based on non-rigid image registration using an anatomical free-form deformation model. Traditionally, the B-spline control points of such a model are defined on a rectangular grid in Cartesian space. This arrangement may be suboptimal as it treats the blood pool and myocardium similarly and as it enforces spatial smoothness in non-physiological directions. In this work, the basis functions are locally oriented along the radial, longitudinal and circumferential direction of the endocardium. This formulation allows us to model the left
ventricular motion more naturally. We obtained encouraging accuracy results for the simulated models, with average errors of 0.8±0.6mm (10% relatively) and 0.5±0.4mm (15% relatively) compared to the ground truth in high and low contractility models respectively.
