The basal short axis is divided into segments 1–6, in counter-clockwise order (Panel A). The mid-cavity (Panel B) and apical segments (Panel C) are also numbered in counterclockwise order with the numbers 7–12 and 13–17, respectively. Segment 17 is not displayed in the apical short-axis slice because it represents the apex, which is nicely seen in the long-axis views in Panels B and C of Fig.

11 Generating short and long-axis views for cardiac function analysis. On the basis of an axial CT slice (Panel A), a two-chamber view (Panel B) along the left ventricle (LV) and left atrium (LA) is created by connecting the apex of the left ventricle with the mitral valve (MV; white line in Panel A). From this two-chamber view, a four-chamber view is generated (Panel C) by again connecting the apex of the left ventricle with the mitral valve (MV). In this way, the individual double-oblique cardiac long axes can be identified.
