The LAD courses in the anterior interventricular groove and terminates near the apex of the heart, supplying numerous septal perforators to the interventricular septum and a variable number of diagonal branches to the anterolateral wall of the left ventricle. The proximal LAD is the portion proximal to and including the origin of the first major septal perforator branch. The mid segment of the LAD corresponds to the segment immediately distal to the origin of the first major septal perforator branch and extending approximately one half the distance to the apex of the heart (coinciding or close to the origin of the second diagonal branch).

The atrial filling peak is often quantified by peak filling rate. The ratio of early and atrial peak filling rate (E/A ratio) is another parameter that is commonly used. Tagged MR imaging can also be used to measure global and regional diastolic function by calculation of diastolic strain rate (27). 5 (13–27) 148 Ϯ 35 (78–218) 84 Ϯ 17 (50–118) 56 Ϯ 18 (20–92) 32 Ϯ 10 (12–52) 90 Ϯ 19 (52–128) 53 Ϯ 9 (35–71) LV, left ventricular; RV, right ventricular; SD, standard deviation.

Unlike the papillary muscles of the right ventricle, these 21 papillary muscles are large and arise only from the free wall surface. The outlet component consists of the portion of the ventricle that gives rise to the aortic valve. Two leaflets of the aortic valve have muscular attachments to the outlet component. The posterior part of the outlet component is short, with the remaining aortic leaflet supported by the fibrous tissue of the aortic root, which is in fibrous continuity with the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve (Figs.
