BACKGROUND Regional myocardial geometry, function, and perfusion status are critical variables for understanding infarction-induced left ventricle (LV) remodeling. Three-dimensional contrast echocardiography (3DCE) is uniquely suited to measure these parameters. We evaluate the ability of 3DCE to assess geometric changes in the normally perfused but hypocontractile borderzone myocardium (BZM) immediately after a myocardial infarction (MI) in an ovine model, and we compare 3DCE with two… CONTINUE READING
