Segmental strain analysis by deformation of a mesh model: comparison of segmental strain metrics and late gadolinium enhancement quantification in myocardial infarction

Abstract

Background The presence and transmurality of posterolateral scar within the left ventricle by late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) imaging has been shown to portend poor response to cardiac resynchronization therapy due to placement of the LV lead in this region. Unfortunately, the use of gadolinium is contraindicated in patients with significant renal dysfunction due to the risk of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis. Alternative measures of regional myocardial non-viability by 4D strain analysis may be highly useful for CRT evaluation in patients with heart failure and renal dysfunction.
