OBJECTIVE To report the current status of speckle tracking techniques in evaluation of fetal myocardial deformation. METHODS A variety of non-Doppler ultrasound methods are available using offline analysis of standard four-chamber and short axis views of the heart. RESULTS Most reports have used techniques developed for the measurement of strain and strain rate in the adult heart and produced conflicting descriptions of gestational changes in strain. Myocardial velocities usually reflect… CONTINUE READING
