Figure 2 Layer longitudinal peak strain assessed by 2D-STE in a patient with CAD. The first-row panels indicate the global and segment strain from apical long-axis view in endocardium, middle layer, and epicardium. The second-row panels indicate the corresponding segmental strain traces. The lower panels indicate the corresponding qualitative color M-mode strain referring to the 6 consecutive myocardial segments. Dark red, normal strain; light red, decreased strain; and pink color, strongly reduced strain. ENDO – endocardium; MID – middle layer; EPI – epicardium; GS – global strain.
