MM-WHS: Multi-Modality Whole Heart Segmentation

* WHS of other datasets or Challenge data: NEW!!! (see blow)

Accurate computing, modeling and analysis of the whole heart substructures is important in the development of clinical applications. Segmentation and registration of whole heart images is however challenging and still relies heavily on manual work, which is time-consuming and prone to errors.

The Challenge provides 120 multi-modality cardiac images acquired in real clinical environment. It aims at creating an open and fair competition for various research groups to test and validate their methods, particularly for the multi-modality whole heart segmentation. It is not only to benchmark various whole heart segmentation algorithms, but also to cover the topic of general cardiac image segmentation and registration and modeling.

Data and Evaluation:

The purpose of disseminating the Data is to perform a multi-institutional analysis of a database of anonymized clinical MRI and CT scans for whole heart segmentation. This analysis is taking place in the context of the Multi-Modality Whole Heart Segmentation Challenge 2017. The Recipient(s) commit to not disseminate the Data to any third party. For details of the data, please refer to here.
