Each ring corresponds to one slice through the heart, and the rings correspond to positions from the base to the apex of the heart as you move from the outermost ring to the innermost one. The data have a circular pattern. These types of displays are referred to as bullseye displays in the nuclear medicine literature. Does any reader of these messages know of a R function/package that offers this functionality?

I'm not quite sure that I understand the display you want, but 
radial.plot in the plotrix package might do what you want. Also you 
could check the circular and CircStats packages.
