E′, peak early diastolic filling velocity. Limitations to velocity imaging Angle dependency Only velocity components in the beam direction are recorded; therefore, velocity imaging by Doppler is angle dependent. The ultrasound beam should be aligned parallel to the LV wall in long-axis imaging and perpendicular to the wall in short-axis imaging. Also, apical velocities are inaccurate in long-axis view because the apical curvature hinders adequate ultrasound beam alignment. Movement of sample volume The velocities are measured within a defined sample volume.

10). Pulsed Doppler Velocities can be assessed by using spectral tissue Doppler with pulsed-Doppler activated. This is the main method for measuring mitral annular velocities for diastolic function assessment. The velocities obtained are peak velocities, and the comparable mean velocities obtained from colour Doppler method are typically 25% lower. 11). 10 Myocardial velocity traces by colour Doppler mode derived from tissue Doppler imaging. Peak velocities decrease from base to apex shown by highest velocities in tracing from basal sample volume (yellow curve) and lowest velocities in apical tracing (red curve).

The random distribution of the speckles ensures that each region of the myocardium has a unique speckle pattern, like a unique fingerprint. , the fingerprints, will follow the motion of the myocardium and move from one image frame to the next. This change in position of the speckles is registered by the software, which automatically measures the distance between speckles to calculate the myocardial strain. Since calculation of distance between speckles is not dependent on the angle of the ultrasound beam, STE is an angle-independent strain method.
