- n. Plural form of pathline.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
At the time of IVC, pathlines were emitted from the IVC LV blood volume and traced forwards and backwards in time until IVR, thus including the entire cardiac cycle.
The IVR volume was used to determine if and where the pathlines left the LV.
Blood volumes were calculated for every component by multiplying the number of pathlines with the blood volume represented by each pathline.
This information was used to automatically separate the pathlines into four different components of flow: Direct Flow, Retained Inflow, Delayed Ejection Flow and Residual Volume.
