Abstract : This thesis "Optimal cardiac tractography using DT-MRI" offers and studies a new formulation of cardiac tractography based on the use of diffusion tensor images that synthetize the information of the diffusion weighted images. The underlying reasons that led to a new formulation are manifold. Existing methods are mostly based on local data, such as the streamlining algorithms, and thus are subject to many imperfections, especially they are not robust to noise in the data. Another problem with this type of approach based on solving differential equations is their dependency on initialization, unlike the method under study. The other aim of this thesis is to determine one or more numerical criteria to compare and qualify fibers. Even though it seems easy to qualitatively characterize fibers based on the visualization, creating measures to characterize the fibers, either in absolute or in comparison to the data or other fibers, is actually challenging.
