Supplemental Fig. 6 from 3D myocardial strain correlates with murine left ventricular remodelling severity post-infarction

Comparison of maximum principal strains estimated with 3D Direct Deformation Estimation (DDE, solid lines) and Vic2D (dashed lines). Short-axis ultrasound strain data along the anterior (red) and posterior (blue) myocardial walls are shown at baseline and at day 28 post-permanent ligation. Although both 3D-DDE and Vic2D demonstrated significantly lower strain values along the infarcted, anterior myocardium post-surgery, the 3D-DDE method more appropriately tracked changes in myocardial strain, as strain values returned to 0 at the end of the cardiac cycle.
