Mathematical modeling of cardiac mechanics could be a useful clinical tool, both in translating measured abnormalities in cardiac deformation into the underlying pathology, and in selecting a proper treatment. We investigated to what extent a previously published model of cardiac mechanics [6] could predict deformation in the healthy left ventricle, as measured using MR tagging. The model adequately predicts circumferential strain, but fails to accurately predict shear strain. However, the time… CONTINUE READING
