RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Measurements of segmental contraction of the left ventricle by standard magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and two-dimensional echocardiography involve the comparison of diastolic and systolic time frames acquired from the same imaging plane in space. As the cone-shaped left ventricle shortens along its long axis during systole, the… CONTINUE READING
