This paper presents motion and deformation quantification results obtained from
phantom data provided by the second
cardiac Motion Analysis Challenge
at STACOM-MICCAI. We applied the Temporal Diffeomorphic Free Form Deformation (TDFFD) algorithm to the datasets. This algorithm builds upon a diffeomorphic version of the FFD, to provide a 3
continuous and differentiable transform. The similarity metric includes a comparison between consecutive images, and between a reference and each of the following images.
Motion and strain accuracy were evaluated on synthetic 3D ultrasound sequences with known ground truth motion. Experiments were also conducted on
