Abstract

In summary, TDI and SRI are playing an increasing role in cardiac imaging. These methods provide accurate quantification of cardiac function that may assist with diagnosis and prognosis of the patient. For specific applications, more studies are needed to prove their advantages, including accuracy and cost-efficiency, over existing methods before incorporating them into routine clinical practice.
