Abstract

Three-dimensional echocardiographic images simulation from a cardiac tissue A. Bosnjak, G. Montilla, V. Barrios, V. Torrealba Grupo de Procesamiento de Imdgenes, Centra de Investigaciones Medicas y Biotecnologicas, Facultad de Ingenieria, Facultad de Ciencias de la Salud, Universidad de Carabobo, Apdo. 3155, El Trigal, Valencia 02002, Venezuela ABSTRACT This work carries out a mathematical simulation study of each of the processes involved with the acquisition of echocardiographic images. Four modules, designated as: Tissue, Dynamics, Equipment and Texture, were developed for this task. The first module obtains the cardiac tissue using two different approaches: first, a mathematical approach based on a random distribution of ellipsoids, and a second approach based on a series of histological microscopical samples 20|im. calibrated at 10|im per pixel. A reconstructive three-dimensional rendering of the tissue sample is made, providing correction translation and rotation.
