Abstract

Heart diseases cause high mortality while the therapy of these diseases is still faulty. Consequently recovery of human’s heart is valuable for clinical diagnosis and treatment. This paper proposes a new approach for three-dimensional (3-D) representation of external surface of human hearts based on B-Spline model. The model is represented in both Cartesian and cylindrical coordinates. By comparison, we find that the cylindrical coordinate is more convenient and much closely fits the structure of human hearts. The fitting is based on a cloud of points which can be extracted from computed tomography (CT) slices by an edge detection method. Results show that cylindrical B-Spline with a given number of control points can well fit the external surface of an artificial heart, which can then be further used for quantitative and functional analysis of the heart easily and accurately.
