OBJECTIVE Understanding cardiac function requires knowledge of the architecture responsible for the normal actions of emptying and filling. Newer imaging methods are surveyed to characterize directional (narrowing, shortening, lengthening, and widening) and twisting motions. METHODS These movements are defined and then compared with a spectrum of models to introduce a useful "functional anatomy" that explains cardiac spatial and temporal relationships. The sequential nature of normal… CONTINUE READING
