Heart Anatomy

My main concentration so far has been focusing on unsupervised training for identification of the 2 frames (for any arbitrary slice) pertaining to end-systolic and end-diastolic stages of the heart beat cadence. We know that these two stages are defined as the global minimum and maximum of the entire left ventrical volume, thus it seems logical to assume that these global maximums and minimums (for volume) ALSO occur at the global maximum and minimum (for area) of the individual cross-sections for a given slice. However, one can imagine a situation where this might not necessarily be the case – eg. at maximum LV volume, one LV cross section area is slightly smaller than it is, say, slightly after maximum LV volume. I have no reason to believe that this is…
