Nearly automated left ventricular long axis tracking on real time three-dimensional echocardiographic data

Abstract

The measurement of left ventricular (LV) long axis length (LAL) is an integral part of echocardiographic evaluation of LV volume, the most important determinant of LV systolic function. LAL measurements from 2D echocardiography (2DE) are highly dependent on the ability to obtain non-foreshortened LV images. Real-time 3D echocardiography (RT3DE) could… (More)
