Doppler myocardial imaging. A new tool to assess regional inhomogeneity in cardiac function

In echocardiography, there is still a need for a better tool to quantify regional myocardial function. Doppler myocardial imaging (DMI) allows the calculation of local myocardial velocity profiles for segmental motion in both the radial and longitudinal direction. From the local velocity profile data, 1-dimensional regional myocardial strain rates (SR) and… CONTINUE READING
