We aimed to provide reference values for speckle-tracking derived systolic and diastolic myocardial deformation markers, and to determine their relation with age, sex, and cardiovascular risk factors.

Chagas cardiomyopathy (CDC) is associated with a poor prognosis compared to other cardiomyopathies. Speckle tracking echocardiography (STE), which provides direct assessment of myocardial fiber deform...
Because of better awareness and understanding of its pathophysiology, the cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) is more often diagnosed and better managed. The echocardiographic evaluation of CRS now benefits fr...
Classic echocardiographic methodologies offer limited opportunities in assessing right atrial (RA) morphology and function. Three-dimensional (3D) speckle-tracking echocardiography (3DSTE) is a novel ...
The noninvasive evaluation of cardiac morphology and function by echocardiography is an essential part of modern intensive care therapy. However, this procedure can be challenging and beginners often ...
Impaired myocardial deformation has been sporadically described in cardiac asymptomatic systemic sclerosis (SSc). We aimed to study myocardial deformation indices in cardiac asymptomatic SSc patients ...
There is an increasing need for diagnostic modalities able to objectively quantify myocardial function. Quantification of regional myocardial function with ultrasound is challenging on its...
Myocardial deformation imaging allows analysis of myocardial viability in ischemic left ventricular dysfunction. This study will evaluate the predictive value of myocardial deformation ima...
Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) can cause transient myocardial dysfunction. Recently, it have been reported that myocardial dysfunctions that occur in SAH are associated with poor outcomes. ...
The overall objective of the study is to determine whether speckle tracking echocardiography presents additional prognostic value to the routine assessment (clinical and echocardiographic)...
Systolic function is a substantial determinant of overall hemodynamics and organ function. Therefore assessment of left ventricular systolic function (LVF) has been of central interest in...
Test results which deviate substantially from normal ranges of REFERENCE VALUES or other qualitative results. They trigger CLINICAL LABORATORY SERVICES to place a special alert to ensure PATIENT SAFETY.
Intraoperative computer-assisted 3D navigation and guidance system generally used in neurosurgery for tracking surgical tools and localize them with respect to the patient's 3D anatomy. The pre-operative diagnostic scan is used as a reference and is transferred onto the operative field during surgery.
The range or frequency distribution of a measurement in a population (of organisms, organs or things) that has not been selected for the presence of disease or abnormality.
The complete summaries of the frequencies of the values or categories of a measurement made on a group of items, a population, or other collection of data. The distribution tells either how many or what proportion of the group was found to have each value (or each range of values) out of all the possible values that the quantitative measure can have.
A clinical syndrome defined by MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA symptoms; persistent elevation in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM; and release of BIOMARKERS of myocardial NECROSIS (e.g., elevated TROPONIN levels). ST segment elevation in the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also NON-ST ELEVATION MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
