OBJECTIVES Recently an automated analysis approach for left ventricular (LV) X-ray angiographic studies was proposed. This particular study aims to assess the clinical potential of this approach. BACKGROUND Over the past 30 years much research has been carried out to develop a technique with automated contour detection of the LV outline in the end-diastolic (ED) and end-systolic (ES) phases. Very few have made it into clinical practice. Our latest approach is based on innovative model-based… CONTINUE READING
