Methods for cardiac geometry and motion reconstruction from multi-planar tagged magnetic resonance images (MRI) have been developed and refined over the last decade. This paper firstly provides an overview of a finite-element reconstruction method, including variants for interactive three-dimensional reconstruction. The second part of this paper discusses recent applications of MRI and ventricular modelling in the study of electrical-mechanical coupling.
