The evaluation of the ventricular function has a key role in determining therapy and prognosis in patients with heart disease. The standard analysis is limited to quantification of tele-diastolic and tele-systolic frames. An analysis of wall kinetic in each frame of cardiac cycle might allow further information about contractility and diastolic function. The developed algorithms are aimed to achieve an automatic detection of left ventricular wall kinetic during a cardiac cycle in routine clinical activity.
