2-Dimensional Speckle Tracking Echocardiography Derived Strain and Strain Rate: A New Way of Evaluating LV and RV Systolic Function Basic Principles and Case Examples

Overview

2-Dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2D-STE) is a new imaging modality that can evaluate myocardial mechanics in three vectors of contractility: longitudinal, circumferential and radial directions. The units are strain (%) and strain rate (1/sec). The best clinical scenario to apply this new technique to is in patients with preserved ejection fraction.
