Collection of 50 anatomies of the left ventricle of a cohort of subjects selected for cardiac resynchronisation therapy, togheter with their response data.

Meshes: provided in VTK format for easier compatibility (original work done with cubic Hermite EX format meshes)

Response: excel spreadsheet with the case ID and the class (responder or not responder).

"data process.gif" provides an overview of the segmentation and mesh personalization process. Panel A: semi-automatic segmentation by 3D extrapolation (yellow surface and contours) of 2D segmentation contours (red contours and projections) using an open source platform (29). Panel B: mesh template. Panel C: resulting mesh (white surface) overlaid with the segmentation surface colour coded by the distance between them (jet colour map, from 0mm in blue to 1mm in red).
