Where would you measure for Circumferential Fiber Shortening?
vcf = mean circumferences / second. What is the formula?
MMode AO valve (LVET)
vcf = LVEDd  LVEDs / (LVEDd)(LVET)

CO = ?
CO =(d ^{2})(0.785)(TVI)(HR) / 1000 = L/min

Wall Stress is directly related to ventricular systolic pressure & _ _ _ _ _ _.
Wall Stress is indirectly related to wall _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _?

Wall Stress =
WS = Force exerted on object / CSA
RWT=2PWT / LVID

Wall STRAIN is the _ _ _ _ _ applied to solid object causing deformation OR applied to liquid object causing flow strain.
What modality would we use to assess this?

Change P / Change T (time interval between 2 arbitrary points)
What do we use this to assess?
What jet do we use to measure this?

To measure global ventricular function we use IMP. What does IMP stand for?
Index Myocardial Performance

IMP = ?
What is a normal IMP=?
AB / B
 A=Holosystolic
 B=Systolic ejection time
