Computational cardiac models require a realistic
description of left-ventricular cardiac fiber
architecture. In this work, diffusion tensor data across
the entire left ventricle of the human heart were
successfully acquired in both systole and diastole
including correction for myocardial strain. A
comprehensive set of cardiac DTI data is presented and
will be made available in combination with motion data.
The data may serve as realistic input for computational
heart modeling projects.
