Two-Dimensional Mapping of the Velocity Vector Distribution of the Intraventricular Blood Flow
In order to quantify the cardiac flow dynamics in a non-invasive manner, the method for two-dimensional mappings of the equi-velocity and equi-acceleration distribution has been developed in our laboratory during the past several years1,2In this report, 2-dimensional mapping of the flow velocity vector in the left ventricle and its usefulness in medical diagnosis is described.
