BACKGROUND Although two-dimensional speckle tracking (2DST) has been validated in animal and early clinical studies for quantitative evaluation of myocardial motion and contractility, there are only limited measurements in large healthy population to be used as reference data, which severely restricts its clinical application. This study aimed at determining the age-specific normal values of left ventricular (LV) longitudinal, circumferential and radial strain in healthy adults. METHODS We… CONTINUE READING
