Although conventional echocardiography is considered to be reliable for ventricular wall motion analysis and assessment of regional myocardial function, the visual estimation of wall motion is very subjective and therefore highly operator dependent.

Medical Ultrasound Learn how to use it with our 11 Diploma Courses.

Recently we published our observations on 2 patients with stress cardiomyopathy Takotsubo cardiomyopathy in which for the first time cardiac function was evaluated also by 2D-strain imaging [ 74 ]. The same echocardiographic loop was used for evaluation of myocardial displacement and longitudinal deformation strain in the 6 visible LV wall segments.

Detection of the cardiac activation sequence by novel echocardiographic tissue echokardipgraphie method. Speckle-tracking 2D-strain imaging apical long axis view in a heart transplanted patient with normal LV function and no angiographic evidence of coronary artery disease.

Clin Sci Lond ; 6: In addition to early detection and quantification of myocardial dysfunction of different etiologies, assessment of myocardial viability, detection of acute allograft wchokardiographie and early detection of allograft vasculopathy after heart transplantation, strain and strain rate data are helpful for therapeutic decisions and also useful for follow-up evaluations of therapeutic results in cardiology and cardiac surgery.

Strain and Strain Rate Imaging by Echocardiography – Basic Concepts and Clinical Applicability

Noninvasive myocardial strain measurement by a novel automated tracking system from digital image files. Regional strain and strain rate measurements by cardiac ultrasound: Mechanical dyssynchrony in children with systolic dysfunction secundary to cardiomyopathy: Low frame rate increases the spatial resolution, but because speckle-tracking software uses a frame-by-frame approach to follow the myocardial movement and searches each consecutive frame for a speckle pattern closely resembling and in close proximity to the reference frame, with too low a frame rate the speckle pattern could be outside the search area, again resulting in poor tracking [ 2324 ].


Myocardial velocity gradients detected bsaics Doppler imaging. Echokardkographie Echocardiographic strain and strain-rate imaging deformation imaging is a new non-invasive method for assessment of myocardial function. Early detection of left ventricular wall motion alterations in heart allografts with coronary artery disease: Assessment of contractile reserve in patients with intermediate coronary lesions: Prediction of mortality using strain rate in dobutamine stress echocardiography. Open in a separate window.

The SR has the same direction as the strain negative strain during shortening and positive strain during elongation. However the concept of strain is complex.

However, echikardiographie shown by the equation for tissue Doppler derived MVG: Global and regional myocardial function quantification by two-dimensional strain. Our lectures are fun, inspiring, emotional, echokardiographid and rich in examples and cases.

A next step in development of deformation imaging by echocardiography which will be superior to the 2D strain and SR imaging will be the calculation of strain and SR in three dimensions during the same heart cycle. If you are not completely happy with our program, we offer a 30 days money-back guarantee. Impaired inotropic response to basiics 2 diabetes mellitus: Comparing the deformation parameters obtained from patients who underwent routine endomyocardial biopsies, Marciniak et al.

Quantitative dobutamine stress echocardiography for the early detection of cardiac allograft vasculopathy in heart transplant recipients. In patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy who were accepted for heart transplantation HTx we found that systolic and diastolic LV dyssynchrony and dyssynergy, which were detectable by 2D-strain imaging in all investigated patients, were more closely related to hemodynamic alterations, exercise intolerance and patient outcome than LVEF [ ].

Speckle Tracking Echocardiography The spectrum of potential clinical applications is very wide due its ability to differentiate between active and passive movement of myocardial segments, to quantify intra-ventricular dyssynchrony and to evaluate components of myocardial function such as longitudinal myocardial shortening that are not visually assessable.

Non-Doppler two-dimensional strain imaging for early detection of heart transplant recipients with coronary stenoses. However, in the same study the accuracy of 2D-strain rate measurements for the diagnosis of right coronary artery RCA stenosis, was lower fchokardiographie that of TDI-derived strain rate measurements. Less systolic asynchrony more echokarddiographie contractionmore echokardiogrphie relaxation and improvement of contractile function in apical and basal lateral regions were the most evident postoperative changes detectable by 2D strain imaging.

To completely define the deformation of 3D objects, all nine strain components must be defined. When the length of the object is known not only before and after deformation, but also during the deformation process the instantaneous strain can be defined as:.

Strain and Strain Rate Imaging by Echocardiography – Basic Concepts and Clinical Applicability

Thus, even completely passive segments, without deformation, can show motion [ 5 ]. Echocardiographic quantification of myocardial function using tissue deformation imaging, a guide to image acquisition and analysis using tissue Doppler and speckle tracking. Other disadvantages of the TDI-derived strain and SR imaging technique are the time consuming steps for data acquisition and processing and the necessity of expert readers.

Left ventricular longitudinal strain shortening and strain rate velocity of shortening images obtained from apical 2-chamber views before A and Crespectively and after surgical ventricular restoration B and Drespectively in a patient with initially severe LV dysfunction after apical myocardial infarction.

First of all they are derived from 1-dimension velocity measurements while, as already mentioned, the myocardium deforms simultaneously in three dimensions. Click here to open the Standard Views application. Today, echocardiographic deformation imaging allows 1D measurements based on tissue Doppler imaging and 2D strain measurements based on speckle-tracking imaging.

After 2D-strain imaging became available, its usefulness for post-transplant follow-up monitoring of cardiac function was also investigated [ 4080 – 82 ]. Assessment of ischemic myocardium by strain-rate imaging during adenosine stress echocardiography.
