Abstract

Objective: Speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) enables global and regional evaluation of the left ventricle (LV); therefore, it is the most useful method for detecting subclinical dysfunction in patients exposed to cardiotoxic agents. A novel technique triplane (3P) echocardiography also allows single beat assessment of LV global longitudinal strain values. We firstly aimed to demonstrate both two-dimensional (2D)- and 3PSTE-derived LV global longitudinal strain measurements in children after anthracycline exposure.
