OBJECTIVE We evaluated the ability of a novel automatic index based on area strain to reliably quantify global and regional left ventricular (LV) function and accurately identify wall motion (WM)(More)
AIMS We evaluated the accuracy of three-dimensional speckle-tracking echocardiography (3DSTE) to evaluate left ventricular (LV) volumes, ejection fraction (EF), and global circumferential strain (CS)(More)
In an era of rapidly expanding and evolving 3-dimensional echocardiographic (3DE) technology, 1 of the issues facing the 3DE quantification of chamber volumes and function is that different software(More)
A novel method to assess left ventricular (LV) mechanical dyssynchrony using three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) and semi-automated border detection was investigated, which might be superior in(More)
Objectives To compare regional left ventricular (LV) volume curves obtained with real time three-dimensional echocardiography (RT3DE) with two-dimensional circumferential strain curves obtained by(More)
AIMS We directly compared TomTec and QLAB software packages for the three-dimensional echocardiographic (3DE) assessment of left ventricular (LV) dyssynchrony including their ability to predict(More)
OBJECTIVE We studied the comparability of left ventricular (LV) mechanical dyssynchrony assessment by tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) and real-time three-dimensional echocardiography (RT3DE) in patients(More)
