© 2015 IEEE. Local contractility evaluation is a promising area of cardiovascular research. We propose and validate strain calculation method based on Gabor filters used on tagged magnetic resonance images. We focus on longitudinal strain calculated from images of the heart in its long axis. We validate the results on studies of both a healthy volunteer and two cardiomiopathy patients.
