Automatic multiplanar CT reformatting from trans-axial into left ventricle short-axis view

Abstract : The short-axis view defined such that a series of slices are perpendicular to the long-axis of the left ventricle (LV) is one of the most important views in cardiovascular imaging. Raw trans-axial Computed Tomography (CT) images must be often reformatted prior to diagnostic interpretation in short-axis view. The clinical importance of this refor-matting requires the process to be accurate and reproducible. It is often performed after manual localization of landmarks on the image (e.g. LV apex, centre of the mitral valve, etc.) being slower and not fully reproducible as compared to automatic approaches. We propose a fast, automatic and reproducible method to reformat CT images from original trans-axial orientation to short-axis view. A deep learning based seg-mentation method is used to automatically segment the LV endocardium and wall, and the right ventricle epicardium. Surface meshes are then obtained from the corresponding masks and used to automatically detect the shape features needed to find the transformation that locates the cardiac chambers on their standard, mathematically defined, short-axis position. 25 datasets with available manual reformatting performed by experienced cardiac radiologists are used to show that our reformatted images are of equivalent quality.
