Automated assessment of left ventricular wall motion based on surface detection and color-encoding of real time three-dimensional echocardiographic images


Off-line 3D color-encoding was applied to the left ventricular (LV) endocardial surfaces obtained from real-time 3D echocardiographic images. Systolic regional wall motion abnormalities (RWMA) were automatically detected and the accuracy of this method was tested against expert visual interpretation of 2D echocardiographic (2DE) images (apical 2-, 3- and 4… (More)
