Speckle tracking based strain analysis in a patient with myocardial infarction. Upper panels: physiologic and pathologic segmental strain curves from the three apical standard views. Lower panels: bull’s eye displays of the regional longitudinal strain; A and B, peak systolic strain in two different colour maps; C, post systolic index. Note the clear delineation of the anteroseptal infarct area. AVC - aortic valve closure; APLAX, 4CV, 2CV – apical long axis, four- and two-chamber view.
