To calculate left ventricular (LV) volumes from biplane cineangiography obtained in nonstandard views, regression equations were developed from LV casts of known volume. Volumes were calculated by the area-length method from casts ranging from 1.4 to 48.9 ml obtained from 30 postmortem cases with heart disease. The casts were divided into 2 groups: group I… CONTINUE READING
