Two-dimensional strain ultrasound speckle tracking as a novel approach for the evaluation of right hemidiaphragmatic longitudinal deformation


The diaphragm is an important respiratory organ. The aim of this study was to quantitatively evaluate the longitudinal deformation of the right hemidiaphragm in normal subjects using two-dimensional strain ultrasound speckle tracking. Twenty-one healthy subjects were enrolled in this study. GE Healthcare Vivid E9 equipment with M5S probe and Q-analysis… (More)
