Abstract

Myocardial infarctions are frequently associated with abnormal cardiac wall motions which could be detected by reconstructions of the epicardial surface of the heart at successive instants of time throughout a cardiac cycle. Such reconstructions would be particularly useful if they could be obtained non-invasively and displayed to the clinician in an on-line real-time interactive mode. The authors have developed a computer algorithm whose speed and parallel nature makes such on-line real-time reconstructions possible. This article describes the algorithm and demonstrates its performance in reconstructing both a mathematically generated phantom representing a cross section of the human thorax and also cross sections of the intact thorax of a dog from actual x-ray data.
