The knowledge of endocardial borders in regular B-mode (left side, is an generic exemplary image) along the entire heartbeat can be used for a comprehensive assessment of cardiac mechanics based on volumes, deformation, and flow (right side). Volume curve and EF provide a primary measure of cardiac function; strain represents a second level of information whose clinical value was demonstrated in literature; a flow force provides a further level of knowledge
