Abstract

OBJECTIVE. 1. To quantify the value of myocardial regional wall motion and to study the inter-segmental integration pattern of the circumferential regional wall motion of the left ventricle using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in patients with normal global and regional left ventricular systolic function (LVEF ≥ 55%) and compare results to groups with impaired left ventricular systolic function (LVEF ≤ 55%). 2. To prove that the inter-segmental integration pattern of normal myocardial regional wall motion is consistent and can be used effectively as a complimentary tool with visual estimation method to detect the impaired myocardial regional wall motion.
