OBJECTIVE To evaluate the correlation between feature tracking-derived measurements of the right ventricular myocardium and gestational age in healthy fetuses. METHODS Global and segmental longitudinal peak systolic strain, strain rate and velocity values of the right ventricular myocardium were assessed by a novel feature-tracking technique in 150 healthy fetuses at between 13 and 39 weeks' gestation. Reference ranges were constructed with respect to gestational age, and inter- and… CONTINUE READING
