The values of left ventricular volumes (EDV and ESV) were determined in 35 patients with various heart diseases by computerized reading technique utilizying both the area-length and the slice methods. The data thus obtained were compared both with those derived manually and with those obtained following injection of 113mIn into the left ventricle and monitoring by external counting the dilution curve. Good agreement among the data obtained by the various methods was found. It appears, then, in the clinical practice, the computerized method has definite advantages over the others since it allows quick determination of the data and therefore examination of multiple frames.
