The grasp thesis of Johanna Maria Ticar finds high-resolution insights into the myocardial microstructure and illustrates that cardiac muscle fibers are immediately, operating in parallel with one most well-liked fiber course, besides the fact that, deposits comparable to fats appear to compromise the typical and compact constitution. moment harmonic new release imaging mixed with optical tissue clearing is a correct technique for deciding on the 3-dimensional muscle fiber and sheet orientations and accordingly, permits the calculation of fiber rotation through the ventricle wall.

In both (a) and (b) the organization of fibers in sheets is visible. 6: Volume rendering of optical sections obtained by SHG imaging. Previous to the actual imaging the sample was rotated 90◦ around the x-axis. (a) is an in-plane (xz) projection of the top of the volume-rendered sample. 7 depicts two different samples, both having a depth of 500 μm with a step size of 5 μm in between individual slices and in-plane dimension 620×620 μm. 14) is higher. 1 as this sample was considered to be an outlier.

10 depicts the three-dimensional myocytes fiber orientations of a z-stack with a depth of approximately 1060 μm (y-axis). The horizontal lines correspond to about 54 images of which the distribution of fiber angles and amplitudes were indivdually determined. 11: Depiction of the von Mises distribution ρ(Φ) for five different concentration parameters b. ρ(Φ)=1 is true for b=0 characterized by a uniform distribution representing an isotropic fiber distribution. A Dirac delta function at angle μ represents the distribution for b −→ ∞ (Schriefl et al.

2). From the fit, both the location parameter μ and the concentration parameter b were obtained and calculated for every single image in the z-stack. The location parameter μ describes the principal (preferred) fiber orientation of the distribution, while the concentration parameter b determines the shape of the von Mises distribution. A narrower distribution indicates elevated b-values and hence, more aligned fibers. Therefore, a more anisotropic fiber distribution follows. Both structural parameters are plotted over the depth, shown in (a) and (b) of Fig.
