Feasibility of strain and strain rate evaluation by two-dimensional speckle tracking in murine model of myocardial infarction: comparison with tissue Doppler echocardiography.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Echocardiography has become a useful tool for serial evaluation of cardiac phenotype in mice. We aimed to examine the feasibility and reproducibility of advanced echocardiographic methods: two-dimensional speckle tracking (STE) and tissue Doppler echocardiography (TDE) in assessing strain and strain rate for analysis of myocardial infarction (MI… (More)
