In this paper, we extend a previous work by J. Park and propose a uniform framework to reconstruct left ventricle (LV) geometry/motion from tagged MR images. In our work, the LV is modeled as a generalized prolate spheroid, and its motion is decomposed into four components-global translation, polar radial/z-axis compression, twisting, and bending. By formulating model parameters as tensor products of B-splines, we develop efficient algorithms to quickly reconstruct LV geometry/motion from extracted boundary contours and tracked planar tags. Experiments on both synthesized and in vivo data are also reported.
