The authors applied a previously described method for 3D LV reconstruction from a limited number of long-axis 2D echocardiographic images to obtain epicardial and endocardial surfaces. By intersecting a regularly-spaced set of lines perpendicular to the center-surface with the endocardial and epicardial surfaces, LV local thickness was measured. Accuracy… CONTINUE READING
