The challenge has now completed and was held as part of the ISBI 2012
A reference standard for scar and fibrosis was established by merging manual segmentations from three observers. Furthermore, scar was also quantified using 2, 3 and 4 standard deviations (SD) and full-width-at-half-maximum (FWHM) methods.
Seven institutions responded to the challenge: Imperial College (IC), Mevis Fraunhofer (MV), Sunnybrook Health Sciences (SY), Harvard/Boston University (HB), Yale School of Medicine (YL), King’s College London (KCL) and Utah CARMA (UTA, UTB)
There were 8 different algorithms evaluated in this study.
The Medical Image Analysis Journal publication on this dataset is now published and free open-text with DOI: 10.1016/j.media.2016.01.004
I chaired the LivScar DE-MRI workshop along with Prof. Kawal Rhode. The challenge papers published in Springer contains several algorithms proposed for segmenting LV scar from this dataset
