Right ventricular (RV) dysfunction can serve as an indicator of heart and lung disease and can adversely affect the left ventricle. However, normal RV function must be characterized before abnormal states can be detected. We describe a method for reconstructing the 3D motion of the RV by fitting a deformable model to tag and contour data extracted from(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has been shown to decrease mortality in 60-70% of advanced heart failure patients with left bundle branch block (LBBB) and QRS duration > 120 ms. There have been intense efforts to find reproducible non-invasive parameters to predict CRT response. We hypothesized that different left ventricular contraction(More)
Right ventricular dysfunction is one of the more common causes of heart failure in patients with congenital heart defects. Use of computer-assisted procedures is becoming more and more popular in clinical decision making process and computer-aided surgeries. In this paper, a MRI-based patient-specific 3D computational model with fluid-structure interactions(More)
