Multidimensional ultrasonic imaging and tissue characterization

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Myocardial ischemia can be studied using multidimensional parametric or material property images of the heart obtained using ultrasound. We describe methods suitable for both in vitro and in vivo evaluation of hearts from experimental animals and for in vivo human hearts. Regions of ischemia can be seen as early as 5 minutes after the blood flow has been terminated from regions of the myocardium. Multidimensional relationships can be seen using specialized three-dimensional imaging techniques.
