Figure 2

Measurement of radial normal strain of IVS and LVPW at mid level in parasternal LV long axis view (taken from Additional file 2 ). Right panel shows radial normal strain curves for left ventricular posterior wall (LVPW) and interventricular septum (IVS). IVS strain peaks earlier than LVPW strain, and peak strain value is about 2 times larger in LVPW than in IVS. Ao = aorta, ECG = electrocardiogram, LA = left atrium, LV = left ventricle, and RV = right ventricle.
