Table 4 Percentage error (mean ± SD) of LV surface volume using different models that using either two, or three slices, and the corresponding Trapezoidal model at the same number of slices

From: Improved estimation of the cardiac global function using combined long and short axis MRI images of the heart

Number of slices Type of slices Model name Error (mean ± SD) Trapezoidal model
2 slices 2 LAX Biplane ellipsoid −9.9 ± 5.88 1.92 ± 5.96
  1 SAX + 1 LAX Hemisphere cylinder 3.6 ± 7.4  
3 slices 2 SAX + 1 LAX Modified Simpson rule −5.73 ± 8.95 −2.28 ± 4.38
