Paper Abstract

In order to describe the movement of the left ventricular wall, we have developed a method to access the movement of its centre of mass, using ECG-gated T1-201 scintigraphy of the left ventricle. To reject areas with T1-201 uptake outside the left ventricle, we had to delineate the object in scintigrams with extremely low signal-to-noise ratios, and to estimate a background count density. The DIODA-contour detection program showed even in these extreme circumstances its worth.
