To forego the need to arbitrarily choose coordinate, reference, and indexing systems and to make other assumptions mandated by traditional methods of measuring wall motion, a technique of regional function analysis based on shape characteristics and pattern recognition was developed. The method is based on curvature analysis, a fundamental shape parameter,(More)
To evaluate the relative long-term improvement in coronary artery hemodynamics after revascularization by coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) or percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), regional coronary flow reserve (CFR) was measured, by digital computer analysis of 35 mm cine film, in 50 men undergoing cardiac catheterization. CFR(More)
