Paper Abstract

A model of echogenic structures based on previous conventional inhomogeneous continuum models is presented for generating cardiac muscle textures in two-dimensional echocardiograms. It is designed to study the dynamic aspects of echographic texture in relation to cardiac dynamics. The theoretical basis and assumptions made in the simulation of myocardial textures are discussed. Finally, preliminary results showing average gray level variations with different orientations and states of contraction of myocardial fibers are presented.
