Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

High temporal resolution, full three-dimensional imaging of the heart and circulation is required for accurate basic physiological studies of the structural-to-functional relationships of these organ systems, and for improved diagnostic evaluation and treatment of patients with cardiac and/or circulatory disorders. Current diagnostic imaging techniques and systems, including x-ray computed tomography (CT) (1, 2), do not provide accurate measurements of the true dynamic changes in shape and dimensions of the intact heart over its entire anatomic extent, or for accurate measurement of the regional distribution of blood flow to, from, and within the heart, or any other organ of the body.
