Speckle tracking echocardiography in very preterm infants: feasibility and reference values.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) applies computer software analysis on images generated by conventional ultrasound to define and follow a cluster of speckles from frame to frame and calculates parameters of motion (velocity, displacement) and deformation (strain, strain rate). We explored STE of the left ventricle in stable very preterm… (More)
