Anterior leaflet area was calculated using the Matlab algorithm given in Appendix C. For each frame in each heart, this algorithm fits a surface to all the anterior leaflet markers shown in Figure 1.2, tiles this surface with a fine mesh of rectangular elements with dimensions dx by dy, computes the area of each element as dx*dy, then sums all these areas to arrive at the total leaflet surface area. Tests of this algorithm showed that it is capable of measuring the surface area of a half sphere to within 1%.
