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.
