Localization of infarcted regions is essential to determine the most appropriate treatment for patients with cardiac ischemia. Myocardial strain partially reflects the location of infarcted regions, which demonstrated potential use in clinical practice. However, strain patterns are complex and simple thresholding is not sufficient to locate the infarcts. Besides, many strain-based parameters exist and their sensitivities to myocardial infarcts have not been directly investigated. In our study, we propose to evaluate nine strain-based parameters to locate infarcted regions. For this purpose, we designed a large database (n = 200) of synthetic pathological finite-element heart models from 5 real healthy left ventricle geometries. The infarcts were incorporated with random location, shape and degree of severity. In addition, we used a state-of-the-art learning algorithm to link deformation patterns and infarct location. Based on our evaluation, we propose to sort the strain-based parameters into three groups according to their performances in locating infarcts.
