Echocardiographic technology has currently reached a stage where it can provide 4D visual data revealing details of the real heart motion. Possibility of spatial reconstruction and quantitative description of such motion became very important task in today’s cardiology. Unfortunately, because of the low quality such image data does not allow precise measurements. To overcome this problem images need to be processed further and moving structures have to be extracted. In this work we present a method for estimating heart motion from 3D echocardiographic image sequence. We also introduce a novel method for quantitative and qualitative validation of motion reconstruction.
