Guide point modeling of the left ventricle (LV)  can accurately obtain LV function parameters by interactively fitting a deformable LV finite element (FE) model to a few user-defined data points ("guide points") on MR images. However, functional measurements of the right ventricle (RV) are also essential for fully understanding cardiac function.
To develop interactive guide point modeling techniques for fast and efficient clinical evaluation of biventricular function.
