Standardized Delineation of Endocardial Boundaries in Three-Dimensional Left Ventricular Echocardiograms

.

Conclusions

Comparing 3D LV tracings, the endocardial areas that are the most difficult to delineate were identified. The suggested protocol for LV tracing resulted in very good agreement among operators. The reference 3D meshes are available for online testing and ranking of LV tracing algorithms.

Strain para quimioterapia todos já conhecem.

Strain para neoplasia é novidade de estudo brasileiro e americano.

.

Conclusions

Patients with AL had higher LV volumes and lower GLS than patients without cancer and lower GLS than patients with breast cancer, suggesting that AL by itself may be associated with these cardiac alterations.
