Example of contouring of the right ventricular endocardium (yellow) and epicardium (blue) in one patient at end-diastole (a) and end-systole (b). Endocardial borders at end–diastole and at end–systole in contiguous short–axis images were manually traced. The epicardial borders at end–diastole were also traced. The difference in area at end-diastole was multiplied by the slice thickness and the sum of these differences throughout the entire right ventricle was multiplied by the myocardial specific density to calculate right ventricular mass. Right ventricular trabeculations were considered part of the blood pool
