Left Bundle Branch Block (or LBBB) is a common cardiac electrical conduction abnormality. It is important to quantify the degree of LBBB using cardiac MR. We propose a six-segment center point trajectory (CPT) approach for LBBB quantification. The proposed method was implemented on a total of nine healthy and LBBB subjects. A quantitative metric generated by CPT showed statistically significant distinction between normal and LBBB regions.
