Tissue Doppler, Triplane Echocardiography, and Speckle Tracking Echocardiography: Different Ways of Measuring Longitudinal Myocardial Velocity and Deformation Parameters. A Comparative Clinical Study
Fontana A et al. – Tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) and speckle tracking are both feasible and reproducible. Myocardial velocity and deformation parameters obtained with them are significantly different. speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) is the most reproducible technique, whereas TDI based measurements are lower reproducible. STE can easily be used during clinical follow up for its feasibility and high reproducibility.
