Right atrial deformation through speckle tracking echocardiography and feature tracking CMR

Abstract:

The right atrium (RA) plays a vital role in the electromechanical regulation of the heart. Various invasive and non-invasive techniques have been used to elucidate right atrial structure and function. One such novel technique is speckle-tracking echocardiography (STE). Speckle tracking-derived deformation is a relatively new parameter, which is less dependent on loading conditions. STE tracks acoustic scatters (speckles) of myocardium, frame by frame, to calculate the strain or deformation in...
