Left ventricular functional abnormalities are postulated to be associated with regional modification of surface curvature. This study describes the computation of the differential properties of the LV surface via an analytic approach using local surface fitting. Quantification was implemented with cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which was used as the source to derive 3D wire-frame models and the related shape descriptors. Based on these shape descriptors, the shape of LV could be represented in both static and dynamic manners. These may have implications for diverse cardiac diseases.
