Abstract

Background: This study was planned by the EACVI/ASE/Industry Task Force to Standardize Deformation Imaging to (1) test the variability of speckle-tracking global longitudinal strain(GLS) measurements among different vendors and (2) compare GLS measurement variability with conventional echocardiographic parameters.
