    Common cardiac diseases such as cardio-myopathy, coronary artery diseases, and valve diseases, result in abnormal myocardial movement, which could eventually lead to heart failure, also called congestive heart failure (CHF). CHF is a disease in which the heart's ability to pump blood efficiently is lost. Possible presence of this disease and location of the abnormal activity can be diagnosed from patient's scan images, by determining the wall motion abnormalities. In this paper, a new principal component analysis (PCA) technique, Eigenhearts, is presented to diagnose the abnormal contractility of heart wall. Experiments were carried out using a preliminary set of simulated scan data and the results are discussed.
