• Fully automatic real-time ejection fraction and MAPSE measurements in 2D echocardiography using deep neural networks 

      Smistad, Erik; Østvik, Andreas; Salte, Ivar Mjåland; Leclerc, Sarah; Bernard, Olivier; Løvstakken, Lasse (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Cardiac ultrasound measurements such as left ventricular volume, ejection fraction (EF) and mitral annular plane systolic excursion (MAPSE) are time consuming and highly observer dependent. In this work, we investigate if ...
    • Myocardial Function Imaging in Echocardiography Using Deep Learning 

      Østvik, Andreas; Salte, Ivar Mjåland; Smistad, Erik; Nguyen, Thuy Mi; Melichova, Daniela; Brunvand, Harald; Haugaa, Kristina; Edvardsen, Thor; Grenne, Bjørnar; Løvstakken, Lasse (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Deformation imaging in echocardiography has been shown to have better diagnostic and prognostic value than conventional anatomical measures such as ejection fraction. However, despite clinical availability and demonstrated ...
    • Real-Time Automatic Ejection Fraction and Foreshortening Detection Using Deep Learning 

      Smistad, Erik; Salte, Ivar Mjåland; Østvik, Andreas; Melichova, Daniela; Nguyen, Thuy Mi; Haugaa, Kristina; Brunvand, Harald; Edvardsen, Thor; Leclerc, Sarah; Bernard, Olivier; Grenne, Bjørnar; Løvstakken, Lasse (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Volume and ejection fraction (EF) measurements of the left ventricle (LV) in 2-D echocardiography are associated with a high uncertainty not only due to interobserver variability of the manual measurement, but also due to ...
