Strain compounding has been previously developed as an approach to reducing speckle noise. The technique is based on speckle de-correlation induced by different strain levels applied on the medium and has been demonstrated feasible in the human superficial soft tissues under external quasi-static compression. In this study, the efficacy of strain compounding in echocardiography was investigated. A temporal gate in a cardiac cycle was first defined, with the middle echocardiographic framedoi:10.1109/ultsym.2014.0325 fatcat:2u4tnota3zewfm7gnq6wvp4j34
