BACKGROUND With the development of high-resolution myocardial imaging there has evolved a need for automated techniques that can accurately quantify regional function. OBJECTIVE To develop a new method for quantification of spatial and temporal parameters of endocardial motion. DESIGN Magnetic resonance images were analyzed using a unique, shape-based approach that tracks endocardial surface motion at defined points through the cardiac cycle by minimizing the bending energy.
