In this paper we present an evaluation of a robust visual image tracker on echocardiographic image sequences. We show how the tracking framework can be customised to define an appropriate shape-space that describes heart shape deformations that can be learnt from a training data set. We also investigate an energy-based temporal boundary enhancement method to improve image feature measurement. Preliminary results are presented demonstrating tracking on real normal heart motion data sequences and synthesised and real abnormal heart motion data sequences. We conclude by discussing some of our current research efforts
