AIMS Previous reports have demonstrated that myocardial velocities are not sufficiently sensitive in foetal heart studies. Strain (S) imaging is a new non-invasive ultrasonic technique able to quantify regional myocardial deformation properties. Strain imaging has a superior sensitivity than myocardial velocity for non-invasive assessment of ventricular function. However, Doppler-derived strain imaging has been used to quantify myocardial deformation properties in the foetal heart with rather… CONTINUE READING
