Figure 7: Schematic diagram showing steps involved in the calculation of segmental left ventricular (LV) stress-strain loop area. Segmental strain curves are imported from speckle-tracking software. LV pressure, segmental wall thickness, and curvature are used to calculate segmental wall stress. Finally, segmental stress-strain loops are constructed and the loop area is used as a measure of regional work load. Reproduced with permission from Cvijic M et al.
