BACKGROUND Two-dimensional echocardiography is useful for estimating the extent of infarct-related wall motion abnormalities. Such estimation, however, is based on a few selected views and extrapolated for the whole left ventricle (LV). This approach does not provide us with the actual amount of dysfunctional myocardium.
