Strain analysis and visualization: left ventricle of a heart

Clinical utility of computational models is crucial in the applications of medical data visualization. Previously we have developed a new class of volumetric models whose parameters are functions in conjunction with physically based deformable modeling framework, and have applied the technique to estimate the left ventricular (LV) wall motion. We have successfully showed that the model parameter functions characterize the LV motion of normal and abnormal stares and that no further non-trivial post-processing is required for anatomically meaningful interpretation. In an effort to evaluate the LV model, this paper presents a method and results from a strain analysis based on the nodal displacements of the deformable LV model. Furthermore, in order to visualize the local quantities on the volumetric model for an effective analysis, we also developed a methodology to assist in assessing the cardiac function utilizing principal strains, Von-Mises' yield criteria, and a smoothing filter. Each strain tensor component,vas in the range of values observed in other reported studies. The application of a smoothing filter on the model improved in visualizing the overall trend of each strain variation. With our platform for a comprehensive strain analysis, we have augmented a clinical utility to the deformable models with parameter functions, (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
