Strain Echocardiography

Strain rate Imaging is a method in Echocardiography for measuring regional or global deformation of the myocardium. The term "deformation" refers to the myocardium changing shape and dimensions during the cardiac muscle. If there is myocardial Ischemia, or there has been a Myocardial infarction, in part of the heart muscle, this part is weakened and shows reduced and altered Systolic function. Also in regional asynchrony, as in Bundle branch block, there is regional heterogeneity of systolic function. By strain rate imaging, the simultaneous function of different regions can be displayed and measured.
