Paper Abstract

The volume of the heart as a function of time over a period of several full cardiac cycles can be used in conjunction with concurrent pressure measurements to obtain important indications of myocardial function: total work output, efficiency, stroke volume and so forth. Of the four heart chambers, the left ventricle (LV) is of primary importance medically since it is the systematic pumping chamber of the heart and consequently provides most of the work output. For this reason, the LV is the object of this study.
