Evaluation of epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) burden holds potential as a biomarker for CHD diagnosis. EAT volume is challenging to assess using MRI due to its curved shape susceptible to partial volume effect. As a substitute, 4-chamber EAT surface can be reliably measured and has shown good correlation with EAT volume (r2=0.62). Two fully convolutional neural networks (FCN) were investigated for the segmentation of EAT surface on a database of 126 subjects. Promising results were obtained with DICE values of 0.71.
