Although ultrasound motion estimation has many applications in distinct scientific domains, within the medical field, motion estimation naturally goes hand in hand with cardiac imaging. As such, it is not surprising to see that most practical examples discussed in this part of the book relate to the heart despite the fact the motion estimation methodologies presented are generic.
