Motion Analysis of the Whole Heart

In this chapter, we present a brief overview of our research on cardiac motion analysis. MRI of the whole heart, at an adequate temporal resolution, produces significant number of images. Over the past years, the main goals of cardiac MR research have been to develop not only faster and better pulse sequences, but also mathematical techniques and end-user software to analyze the ever-increasing number of images. In fact, one important reason that some of the cardiac MR techniques have not become a part of a routine cardiac examination is certainly the deficiency of appropriate analysis tools that can be used by clinicians.
