A procedure for calculating left ventricular wall stresses segmentally was devised. Rectangular coordinates of the wall surfaces as seen in longitudinal section were plotted with the long axis as the x-axis. For each cavity point, a third-order polynomial (cubic spline) was fitted to the point together with several adjacent points on either side of it; the cavity radius (normal to cavity surface) at the point was found algebraically from the spline's coefficients. Each cavity radius was matched… CONTINUE READING
