3D cine whole-heart cardiovascular magnetic resonance (MR) imaging promises to enable more accurate quantitative evaluation of cardiac function. To extract volumetric measurements of heart chambers and vascular structures from 3D cine datasets, we utilize a graph cuts segmentation algorithm and a deformable registration method. Our measurements differ from those acquired from the conventional 2D cine images, suggesting measurements of ventricular volume based on 2D cine lack accuracy. Clinical evaluation of heart function can therefore be improved by using 3D cine cardiovascular MR imaging coupled with automatic whole heart segmentation.
