Estimation of wall stress and left ventricular mass by noninvasive techniques and clinical implications.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Left ventricular mass and wall stress are easily calculated using routinely available imaging modalities. Consideration of these parameters provides important contributions to the evaluation and treatment of many forms of heart disease. The newer techniques of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging hold great potential for increasing both the accuracy and the ease of mass and stress determinations.
