"Perioperative monitoring of cardiac function based on transesophageal echocardiographic data"
Major cardiac interventions are known to have a negative impact on heart function. Patients that undergo cardiac surgery have their heart carefully monitored and evaluated perioperatively in order to determine whether the heart restores and maintains the desired functionality. Currently, cardiac monitoring remains largely qualitative. Quantitative measures for cardiac function has been an active field of research for years and with technological advancement being made to transesophageal echocardiography, it is expected that automated functional monitoring can be facilitated. TEE provides acquisitions of high- quality and frame rate, making automated computation of both global and regional cardiac function feasible. MAPSE, mitral annular peak velocities and strain are well established cardiac parameters that describe motion, rate of motion and deformation of the myocardium, and they are reported to relate well with cardiac function. The main aim of this thesis is to compute cardiac functional parameters automatically by a combining speckle tracking and velocity estimation from tissue Doppler measurements.

Non-Rigid Registration Using Polynomial Expansion with Diffeomorphic
Constraints Applied to Cardiac Ultrasound Volumes"
This thesis attempted to develop a fast, non-rigid,
diffeomorphic image registration implementation and was written as a
continuation of a project that was completed during the fall of 2016  which
developed and implemented a rigid image registration code. Non-rigid
diffeomorphic image registration is already used in many diagnostic and
research related medical situations, however due to the computational demands
it is only used as a post-processing tool. This thesis focused mostly on how it
could be used with 3D echocardiography to estimate a vector field
representation of the movement of the heart, preferably in real-time.
