To evaluate the ability of a system developed in our laboratory to differentiate between acute and healed myocardial infarction (MI), gated 2-dimensional echocardiography was performed in 10 patients with recent MI (within 48 hours) and 10 patients with healed MI (later than 4 weeks). The 2-dimensional echocardiographic images were digitized using a Datacube VG-120 videoframe digitizer and each digitized videoframe (320 X 240 matrix) was transmitted using a high-speed serial data link to a… CONTINUE READING
