In this paper, a new method for detecting the endocardial boundary using a Hopfield neural network is proposed. Taking advantage of parallel computation and energy convergence capability in the Hopfield network, this method is faster and more stable for the detection of endocardial border. Moreover, neither manual operations nor a priori assumptions are needed in this method. Experiments on several LV echocardiograms and clinical validation have shown the effectiveness of our method in these patient studies.
