Although there are many algorithms available in the literature aimed at segmentation and model reconstruction of 3D angiographic images, many are focused on characterizing only a part of the vascular network. This study is motivated by the recent emerging prospects of whole-organ simulations in coronary hemodynamics, autoregulation and tissue oxygen(More)
BACKGROUND After occlusion of an epicardial artery, left ventricular (LV) dysfunction is closely related to the volume of nonperfused myocardium (NPM). The impact of coronary microembolization (ME) on LV function, however, is larger relative to the total volume of NPM. We hypothesized that the total surface area (SA), rather than the total volume, of NPM is(More)
