An ultrasound-driven kinematic model for deformation of the infarcted mouse left ventricle incorporating a near-incompressibility constraint.

Abstract

Mathematical models of varying complexity have proved useful in fitting and interpreting regional cardiac displacements obtained from imaging methods such as ultrasound speckle tracking or MRI tagging. Simpler models, such as the classic thick-walled cylinder model of the left ventricle (LV), can be solved quickly and are easy to implement, but they ignore… (More)
