In this paper, a an algorithm that detects the endocardial boundary, expanding the region from endocardial cavity using fuzzy inference, is proposed. This algorithm decides the ventricular cavity by fuzzy inference in process of searching each pixel from the inside of left ventricle in echocardial image and expands it. Uncertainty and fuzziness exists in decision of endocardial boundary. Therefore, we convert the lingustic representation of mean, standard deviation, and threshold value that are characteristic variables of endocardial boundary to fuzzy input and output variables. And, we extract proposed method is robuster to noise than radial searching method that is highly dependent on center position. To prove the similarity of detected boundary by fuzzy nference, we used the measures of SIZE, correlation coefficient, MSD, and RMSE and had acquired reasonable results.
