Video clip selector for medical imaging and diagnosis
A method for clip selection includes receiving through an interface to a medical imaging device, a selection of a diagnostic procedure and a target portion of a mammalian body. Thereafter, the device acquires video clip imagery of the target portion and stores the video clip imagery in an image store. Each video clip of the video clip imagery is then image processed to determine a view and a quality of each video clip and a rule is retrieved from a rules base corresponding to the selected diagnostic procedure and target portion. In this regard, the rule specifies a requisite view and quality of the video clip imagery. Finally, the retrieved rule is applied to the video clip imagery as a filter to produce a subset of video clip imagery satisfying the specified requisite view and quality and the subset of video clip imagery is stored in the image store.
