Two-Dimensional Speckle Tracking Echocardiography – a Useful Non-Invasive Method in Predicting Significant Coronary Artery…

Echocardiography is the first cardiac imaging technique used to evaluate patients presenting with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). However, in the absence of wall motion abnormalities, conventional echocardiography at rest provides little information. Patients presenting with low risk ACS usually have normal wall motion and left ventricle ejection fraction (LVEF) at rest.
