Summary

The deformation of the left ventricular wall in normal humans and several kinds of patients with the heart disease was analyzed by using the magnetic resonance tagging technique. From the obtained results, it was confirmed that the characteristic of the cardiac contractility in each heart disease was reflected in the deformation behavior of the myocardial wall. This study suggests that to evaluate the cardiac contractility from a mechanical point of view is useful for the quantitative evaluation of the heart disease.
