AIMS 2D speckle tracking echocardiography allows for assessment of left ventricular (LV) torsional deformation as a composite function of the radial, longitudinal and circumferential fibres. We test the hypothesis that post-exercise LV torsional dynamics are more sensitive markers for myocardial dysfunction than resting measures, and better predictors for(More)
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a novel imaging modality in interventional cardiology. With its clear image quality, it has attracted considerable attention as a tool to accurately evaluate atherosclerosis and coronary stents in vivo. It has a 10-fold higher resolution compared to intravascular ultrasound and utilises near-infrared light that requires(More)
