The design and characteristics of a video-based device that can noninvasively measure the extent and rate of shortening of isolated cardiac myocytes are discussed. Construction of the motion detector is relatively inexpensive. It is easy to use because edge selection is simple and the video images of contracting cells can be analyzed at the experimenter's convenience. The device also exhibits high spatial and adequate temporal resolution. The physiologic application of the motion detector was… CONTINUE READING
