3 Recommendations from the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) [4] Given the advances in contrast-specific imaging techniques, the use of low MI imaging for myocardial contrast echocardiography is recommended, as it provides simultaneous assessment of myocardial function and perfusion. 1 LV opacification and endocardial delineation The myocardial vessels comprise only 7% of the myocardium. The myocardial opacification is, therefore, always much less intense than chamber opacification, reassuring excellent endocardial delineation and differentiation between LV cavity and myocardium.

Strain can quantify regional myocardial systolic function in comparison to EF, which is a global measure of LV function. The first available clinical method for cardiac strain assessment was magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with tissue tagging. Limitations like costs and time consumption of MRI have led to difficulties to implement MRI for clinical strain assessment. Today, we calculate strain and strain rate (SR) more easily from echocardiographic TDI or STE. Definition of strain and strain rate Strain is deformation of a material, relative to its original length.

Definition of strain and strain rate Strain is deformation of a material, relative to its original length. Strain is in fact dimensionless; however, in cardiac mechanics, strain is most often presented as the percent change in dimension. 1) L0 is baseline length of a myocardial segment, and L is the instantaneous length at the time of measurement.
