We present a study consisting in comparing the performances of automatic versus manual segmentation for estimating functional parameters of the left ventricle. The automatic analysis tested here consists in global detection of the left ventricle followed by local deformation of an active contours. Our study shows limitations of automatic analysis and supports quantitative evaluation of automatic analysis approaches.
