Threshold-based left ventricular segmentation provides time-efficient assessment of LV parameters.

The team of U Joseph Schoepf from the Medical University of South Carolina together with investigators from 6 European sites have validated the socalled MassK threshold-based method by Medis in a total of 148 patients and concluded that “ this method may be beneficial in clinical routine to assess LV parameters in CMR studies”. The average analysis time decreased by 50% from 8.4 to 4.2 minutes, it provides improved accuracy compared to aortic flow measurements as a reference, and it has an excellent inter-observer variability.
