The images included in the challenge consists of MRI (n=10) and CT (n=10) datasets. The MRI images are acquired at 1.4 mm isotropic resolution. The CT images are acquired at 0.5 mm in-plane resolution with a slice thickness of 1 mm. Please see this page more information.
Please take a look at the challenge objectives in our FAQ section
The challenge sets out certain objectives, please take a look at these in the FAQ section. But most importantly it is to segment the left atrial wall and quantify its thickness from CT and MRI.
