Many of cardiac diseases are resulted in myocardium contractility alteration. Tagging, a labeling method of myocardium in cardiovascular MRI, is the preferred choice for assessment of left ventricular (LV) mechanical parameters. In this study, using circular shaped tags, we proposed method with high clinical impact to inline generation of density map in order to quantify radial strain of LV. The method successfully was implemented and tested on the 1.5T and 3T clinical MR scanner.
