Evaluation of aortic contractility based on analysis of CT images of the heart

The paper presents a method to assess the aortic contractility based on the analysis of CT images of the heart. This is an alternative method that can be used for patients who cannot be examined by using echocardiography. Usage of medical imaging application for DICOM file processing allows to evaluate the aortic cross section during systole and diastole. It makes possible to assess the level of aortic contractility.
