Image Processing Techniques for Assessing Contractility in Isolated Neonatal Cardiac Myocytes

Figure 11

Solid line: Average adult cardiocyte contraction phase measured using image processing based techniques recently proposed in [17]. Dashed line: Average neonatal cardiocyte contraction phase measured using the proposed methodology. Results are in accordance with the expected outcomes given the marked differences in the development of both cell types and their difference in Ca 2 + handling.
