Intra-ventricular blood flow dynamics are closely related to both ventricle and valve geometry and to the contraction pattern of the myocardial wall. The interaction mechanisms between contraction forces inside the myocardium and hydrodynamic forces are highly complex and have not yet been fully understood, especially in the presence of pathology. We propose a visual analysis framework for the integrated assessment of ventricle and valve morphology, blood flow and local myocardial function. This is a first step to enable better understanding of the different mechanical factors involved in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and their combined contributions to the formation of obstructive HCM.
