Speckle Tracking Echocardiography

Speckle Tracking Echocardiography (STE) is an echocardiographic imaging technique that analyses the motion of tissues in the heart by using the naturally occurring speckle pattern in the myocardium or blood when imaged by ultrasonic. This novel method of documentation of myocardial motion represents a non-invasive method of definition of vectors and velocity. When compared to other technologies seeking non-invasive definition of ischemia, speckle tracking seems a valuable endeavour. This speckle pattern is a mixture of interference patterns and natural acoustic reflections. These reflections, also described as ‘‘speckles’’ or ‘‘markers’’.
