An approach to analyzing and quantifying the shape characteristics of the endocardial contour of the left ventricle of the heart is described. The computation begins by finding the local curvature differences between the contour under consideration and the mean normal contour at each of 100 equidistant points. The weighted square of these differences, summed over a set of points, is shown to be the regional or, global bending energy required to deform the mean normal contour to the… CONTINUE READING
