How to participate ?
Update (October 7th, 2012): Participation to the challenge as a
MICCAI'12 workshop is now closed.
You may still download and use the data, please follow this link.
Below are the instructions for the MICCAI'12 Challenge participants:
- Download, fill in and send back the registration form (please see below) to Caroline Petitjean (firstname.lastname@example.org). This registration is solely intended to the RVSC organizers. It does not compel to the registration to the MICCAI’12 challenge, but is a mandatory step before downloading data and submitting results to the challenge.
Upon reception of the registration form, you will be allowed to download the Training Set (16 patients). The Training database includes DICOM images, a list of images to be segmented, and manually segmented epicardium and endocardium contours. ED and ES phases are already defined, as well as basal and apical slices.
On June 4th, the Test1 Set (17 patients) will be released. For submission, each participant may send an email to Caroline Petitjean, attached with the segmentation results of endocardium and epicardium, or endocardium only. Within 48 hours, full details of the method’s performance analysis will be sent back to the participant.
- Challengers may submit a paper summarizing their method and results (4-8 pages max, LNCS format) to the RVSC organizers.
- On the day of the workshop (Oct 1st), the Test2 Set (17 patients) will be released for on-site challenge. There will be 3 categories:
Fully automatic segmentation methods of the endocardium only
Semi-automatic segmentation methods of the endocardium only
Fully automatic and semi-automatic segmentation methods of the endocardium and epicardium
The collation paper will be compiled only from participants who submitted their results on the day of the workshop.
