Quantification of and Correction for Left Ventricular Systolic Long-Axis Shortening


a fixed plane and fail to compensate for through-plane motion. The shortening of the left ventricle along its long axis during systole results in planar images of two different levels of the ventricle, leading to error in any derived functional measurements. LV systolic long-axis motion was measured in 19 normal volunteers using MRI. Methods and Results… (More)
