Ultrasound Video Transformers for Cardiac Ejection Fraction Estimation
| By Ultromics
Reynaud et al, MICCAI 2021.
Cardiac ultrasound imaging is used to diagnose various heart diseases. Common analysis pipelines involve manual processing of the video frames by expert clinicians. This suffers from intra- and inter-observer variability.
Ultromics proposes a novel approach to ultrasound video analysis using a transformer architecture based on a Residual Auto-Encoder Network and a BERT model adapted for token classification. This enables videos of any length to be processed.
