Calculation of balloon force (Step 2). A midventricular slice of a short-axis stack (a) and the endocardial (b) and epicardial (c) balloon force images calculated in Step 2 with the automatic algorithm. The color scale indicates how the deformable model should expand to include pixels with positive values (red) and contract to exclude pixels with negative values (blue).
