Abstract: Strain and strain rate (SR) are measures of deformation that reflect left ventricular (LV) function. To our knowledge, no previous study described these indexes in a general population. We therefore described peak-systolic strain and SR of the LV in the general population and derived diagnostic thresholds for these measurements in a healthy subgroup.
