Abstract

We have developed a microcomputer-based image processing system to obtain contractile properties of single heart cells. Cell images were videotaped during action potentials being recorded, and were digitized and processed to measure sarcomere length during cell shortening. This system allows to study both action potentials and the associated contractions simultaneously.
