Introduction To Strain Echocardiography

AUTHORS

Matthew Buelow

Abstract

Routine assessment of ventricular function by echocardiography often consists of a qualitative assessment of function. Strain allows for a reproducible qualitative assessment of function. As more is learned about strain and clinical correlation is better characterized strain may prove to be a helpful adjunct in the assessment of ventricular function. This module serves as an introduction to strain echocardiography.
