Imaging myocardial strain

E. McVeigh, C. Ozturk

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The use of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to produce an image of the local deformation of the heart in the form of a myocardial strain image is described. Using these images, the "mechanical activation"of the heart will be defined, that is, the time of onset of contraction. A map of the mechanical activation over the heart is a direct analogy to an electrical activation map of the heart.
