BACKGROUND Clinical studies implementing late gadolinium-enhanced (LGE) cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) studies suggest that the peri-infarct zone (PIZ) contains a mixture of viable and non-viable myocytes, and is associated with greater susceptibility to ventricular tachycardia induction and adverse cardiac outcomes. However, CMR data assessing the(More)
Patient-specific modeling of the heart is limited by lack of technology to acquire myocardial fiber orientations in the clinic. To overcome this limitation, we recently developed an image-based methodology to estimate the fiber orienta-tions. In this study, we test the efficacy of that methodology in infarcted hearts. To this end, we implemented a(More)
