Paper Abstract

Multidimensional cardiac imaging no doubt has many origins and approaches. In reviewing the topic I would like to elaborate on one of those origins and analyze the technique addressed by the following points: (1) Did multidimensional imaging achieve the original goal (which, in our case, was more accurate estimation of the left ventricular chamber volume)? (2) Is this original goal still important? (3) Has multidimensional cardiac imaging provided new insights, diagnostic, or therapeutic capabilities? Indeed, the development of multidimensional imaging as we know it today provides an example of how a physiological measurement problem led to new measurement approaches that helped answer longstanding questions and that the new approach itself led to new directions of research using both the x ray-based as well as other imaging modalities.
