Beginning of the challenge (2023-feb-jun) MYOcardial Segmentation with Automated Infarct Quantification

The 12th International Conference on Functional Imaging and Modeling of the Heart - FIMH 2023, will be held from June 19th to 22nd 2023 in Lyon, France. On this occasion, we are organising the first challenge related to this conference. It will take place as a satellite event of the FIMH conference and will be held on June 19th, 2023.

The MYOSAIQ challenge

MYOSAIQ is a segmentation contest: participants are invited to develop automatic tools to segment four different cardiac structures from Late gadolinium enhanced magnetic resonance images (LGE-MRI).

The main goal is to compare the performance of automatic methods for the quantification of myocardial infarction (MI) lesion size, at different phases of the longitudinal evolution of the disease on images acquired at the acute phase (4-8 days post-MI and reperfusion therapy) and delayed phase (1 month or 12 months post-MI and reperfusion).

Through this challenge, we will provide the community with a public database of 467 Cardiac MRI examinations (fully annotated) obtained at the acute and late phases of myocardial infarction after reperfusion therapy, with a variety of image properties encountered in clinical routine.
