Paper Abstract

Automated computer analysis of cine ventriculograms provides a rapid, reproducible means of analyzing visual data obtained at cardiac catheterization. At the present time several laboratories routinely do semiautomated volumetric analysis of cine ventriculograms. However, their method requires the cardiologist or a trained technician to manually trace the outline of the ventricle on each frame. (Ref. 1 and 2) This technique is time-consuming and prone to errors.
