Black-blood cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) plays an important role in diagnosing a number of heart diseases. The technique suffers inherently from low contrast-tonoise ratio between the myocardium and the blood. In this work, we examined the performance of different classification techniques that can be used. The three techniques successfully removed the noise with different performance. Numerical simulation has been done to quantitatively evaluate the performance of each technique. © 2008 IEEE.
