OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical applicability of strain and strain rate imaging (epsilon/SRI) in heart transplantation (Htx) patients and to establish "normal" post-Htx regional systolic deformation values. BACKGROUND Epsilon/SR indices have been shown to be a more sensitive measure of regional systolic function than… CONTINUE READING
