Myocardial Strain in the Echo Lab Training Video reviews the basics of myocardial strain and speckle tracking, including interpretation, major advantages and tips and tricks to help the viewer incorporate this imaging technique into clinical practice. There has been a growing emphasis in the literature on the use of myocardial strain in echocardiography. With that being said, there are many echo labs where strain is not performed on a routine basis. This can be due to inadequate equipment or training, but there are a number of pathologies and disease states where strain gives an additional piece of information not found with another modality.
