(A) Principal component analysis coordinates for mode 1. The average across all individuals is set at coordinate 0 (dark blue cross). The orange cross and orange RV mesh represent –3SD, whereas the purple cross and purple RV mesh represent +3SD. Box plots represent the median mode 1 coordinates for each group (blue = preterm-born, and green = term-born). (B) Statistical average shape of the right ventricle of term-born (green) and preterm-born (blue) young adults.
