We have developed a mechanical phantom which replicates myocardial strain in blocks of jelly and sections of myocardial tissue. Initial results show the effects of strain during the diffusion time in diffusion tensor cardiovascular magnetic resonance using STEAM and the use of the phantom evaluating the DENSE strain measurement technique.
