Detection of the cardiac activation sequence by novel echocardiographic tissue tracking method. Nevertheless, whereas parameters of systolic dyssynchrony based on TDI longitudinal and radial velocity measurements were able to predict the efficacy echokardioraphie CRT in patients with heart failure, parameters of systolic dyssynchrony based on longitudinal and radial strain data obtained from TDI and speckle tracking 2D-strain imaging appeared not predictive for CRT results [ 9194 ].

Evaluation of longitudinal and radial two-dimensional strain imaging versus Doppler tissue echocardiography in predicting long-term response to cardiac resynchronization therapy.

For each TTE view, the 3D model of the probe, ultrasound plane, heart and rib cage can be rotated in the horizontal or vertical plane to view it from any angle.

Strain and strain rate measurements appeared to be sensitive indicators for sub-clinical diseases, including diabetes, systemic sclerosis, myocardial ischemia, arterial hypertension, isolated mitral regurgitation, aortic regurgitation and non-ischemic cardiomyopathies, and also very useful for the assessment of myocardial damage after infarction, evaluation of myocardial revascularization efficiency and prediction of patient outcome with heart failure [ 1130 – 46 ].


It is also important to know that different tracking algorithms echokardiogrqphie produce different results and therefore it should be kept in mind that a periodical update of the software package conceivably influences reference values. 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 echokardographie function such as longitudinal myocardial shortening that are not visually assessable.

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

The necessity of high image quality is a major limitation for routine clinical applicability in all patients. The FOCUS module has been updated to include pathology sections for the assessment of left ventricular global and regional function, right ventricular dysfunction and hypovolemia, in addition to the section on pericardial effusion and tamponade.

Recently, the value of strain imaging for prediction of future reverse remodelling after CRT has been improved by the development of a strain delay index calculated by use of longitudinal strain assessed by 2D speckle tracking [ 88 ].

In addition to early detection of myocardial dysfunction of different etiologies, assessment of myocardial viability, detection of acute allograft rejection after HTx and early detection of patients with TxCAD, strain echokardiigraphie strain rate measurements are helpful in the selection of different therapies CRT, coronary revascularization, SVR and HTx.

When the length of the object is known not only before and after deformation, but also during the basiccs process the instantaneous strain can be defined as:. One month later global strain values were several times higher and regional strain curves indicated uniform circumferential shortening and radial thickening C and Drespectively.
