Abstract

We mapped the three dimensional (3D) regional right ventricular (RV) motion using Cine-CT in 9 normal subjects and compared it to data from 10 patients with left ventricular (LV) aneurysm. The endocardial borders were traced and the RV's reconstructed in 3D. Regional perpendicular RV systolic motion was evaluated by our 3D stroke-volume-element approach, and the circumferential and longitudinal variations determined. The normal RV is characterized by higher endocardial motion in the posterior relative to the anterior regions (p
