Echocardiographic imaging is ideally suited for the evaluation of cardiac mechanics because of its intrinsically dynamic nature. Because for decades, echocardiography has been the only imaging modality that allows dynamic imaging of the heart, it is only natural that new, increasingly automated techniques for sophisticated analysis of cardiac mechanics have been driven by researchers and manufacturers of ultrasound imaging equipment. Several such techniques have emerged over the past decades to…

TLDR
Accurate assessment of the RV by echocardiography yields early detection of cardiac diseases, enhances risk stratification, and allows timely initiation of appropriate therapy.
Echocardiographic assessment of myocardial ischemia.
TLDR
This review of ultrasound technology in echocardiography will describe and discuss this powerful tool of cardiology, especially in the hands of an experienced user, with a focus on myocardial ischemia.
Left ventricular mechanics assessed by two-dimensional echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging: comparison of high-resolution speckle tracking and feature tracking.
TLDR
Measurement of global longitudinal LV strain using the new FT algorithm with CMR and echocardiography was comparable with measurements obtained by high-resolution STE, and FT-E GLS shows a better reproducibility and a better intermodal agreement with C MR, representing a fair non-proprietary solution for this assessment.
[Clinical Capabilities and Limitations in the Use of Modern Technologies in Echocardiography].
TLDR
In the 2000s years an innovative technique of speckle tracking emerged, which, unlike tissue Doppler echocardiography is efficient, does not burden a researcher with time costs, has a low intra - and inter- operator variability, and does not depend on scan angle.
Echocardiographic Assessment of Myocardial Mechanics: Velocity, Strain, Strain Rate and Torsion
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the technical properties of DTI, STE and tortional parameters and their clinical implication.

Principles of cardiovascular magnetic resonance feature tracking and echocardiographic speckle tracking for informed clinical use
TLDR
The principles underlying the image tracking methods for CMR and echocardiography are described, and the translation of the resulting tracking estimates into parameters suited to describe myocardial mechanics are presented.
Assessment of Right Ventricular Function Using Echocardiographic Speckle Tracking of the Tricuspid Annular Motion: Comparison with Cardiac Magnetic Resonance
TLDR
RV LSF measurement by STE is fast and easy to obtain and provides more accurate evaluation of RV EF than the traditional M‐mode TAPSE technique, when compared to CMR reference.
Concordance and reproducibility between M-mode, tissue Doppler imaging, and two-dimensional strain imaging in the assessment of mitral annular displacement and velocity in patients with various heart conditions.
TLDR
Test the agreement and reproducibility between motion mode, colour tissue Doppler imaging (TDI), and two-dimensional strain imaging (2DSI) when measuring MA displacement and systolic velocity found TDI to be the most robust method, having the lowest observer variability.
