Abstract

Data reflecting regional transmural systolic wall thickening were collected in open chest dogs at rest, during inotropic stimulation and under conditions of varying preload. An echo target was imaged simultaneously with the endocardium to provide direct visual evidence of wall motion at different depths in the anterior wall of the left ventricle.
