Segmental analysis of color kinesis images: new method for quantification of the magnitude and timing of endocardial motion during left ventricular systole and diastole.

BACKGROUND We describe a method for objective assessment of left ventricular (LV) endocardial wall motion based on Color Kinesis, a new echocardiographic technique that color-encodes pixel transitions between blood and myocardial tissue. METHODS AND RESULTS We developed a software that analyzes Color Kinesis images and provides quantitative indices of… CONTINUE READING
