Over the past two decades the quest for quantitative evaluation of left ventricular function and regional wall motion has escalated, allowing several aspects of myocardial contractile patterns to be quantified, both during stress echocardiography and in the assessment of dyssynchrony. Most of the literature to date has used Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI) techniques to assess essentially long-axis function due to the angle dependency of Doppler based techniques. This brief review introduces the… CONTINUE READING
