Better understanding of the
impact that disease has on ventricular shape remodeling and improved tools for
quantifying disease severity are needed in complex diseases such as ARVC. We
propose a method to automatically characterise right ventricular shape features
in ARVC patients using statistical methods applied to shapes extracted from CMR
images in a population of 27 ARVC patients. In addition to characterizing the typical
shape features in ARVC, the level of severity of any given shape feature (e.g.
dilation) can be measured in a new patient to quantify the degree in which that
specific feature is present in that patient.
