Aim: The tutorial aims at providing participants with basic knowledge and practical skills on how to apply strain imaging for evaluation of left ventricle function.
Topics: Evaluation of left ventricle systolic function by strain imaging in heart failure with reduced or preserved ejection fraction, cardiomyopathies, valvular heart disease and coronary artery disease.
