    • Automatic Myocardial Strain Imaging in Echocardiography Using Deep Learning 

      Østvik, Andreas; Smistad, Erik; Espeland, Torvald; Berg, Erik Andreas Rye; Løvstakken, Lasse (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Recent studies in the field of deep learning suggest that motion estimation can be treated as a learnable problem. In this paper we propose a pipeline for functional imaging in echocardiography consisting of four central ...
    • Can a Dinosaur Think? Implementation of Artificial Intelligence in Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy 

      Muller, Sebastien; Abildsnes, Håkon; Østvik, Andreas; Kragset, Oda; Gangås, Inger Sofie Hovd; Birke, Harriet; Langø, Thomas; Arum, Carl-Jørgen (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Background: Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) of kidney stones is losing ground to more expensive and invasive endoscopic treatments. Objective: This proof-of-concept project was initiated to develop artificial ...
    • 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 ...
