Abstract: Assessment of cardiac function in the fetal heart is challenging because of its small size and high heart rate, restricted physical access to the fetus, and impossibility of fetal ECG recording. We aimed to standardize the acquisition and postprocessing of fetal echocardiography for deformation analysis and to assess its feasibility, reproducibility, and correlation for longitudinal strain and strain rate measurements by tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) and 2D speckle tracking (2D-strain) during pregnancy.
