Feasibility, accuracy, and reproducibility of real-time full-volume 3d transthoracic echocardiography to measure lv volumes and systolic function: a fully automated endocardial contouring algorithm in sinus rhythm and atrial fibrillation
JACC Cardiovascular Imaging, 03/26/2012
Thavendiranathan P et al. – Rapid, accurate, and reproducible EF can be obtained by RT–VTTE in NSR and atrial fibrillation (AF) patients by using an automated trabecular edge contouring algorithm. Furthermore, automated contour correction to detect the compacted myocardium yields accurate and reproducible 3D LV volumes.
