Module Description

This module creates a cardiac MRI segmentation mask called the PV Antrum Cut mask by removing the pulmonary veins (PVs) from the left atrium (LA) segmentation. The inputs are the LA endocardial segmentation and the LA endocardial wall segmentation. The output mask represents the entire LA endocardial layer minus the PVs. This mask can be used to calculate the early diastolic (peak) volume of the LA.

Use Cases

This module is meant to be used for removing the PV regions from the LA endocardial segmentation.
