Abstract: Integrated backscatter (IB) and its cyclic variation (CV) are echocardiographic parameters often used for myocardial tissue characterization. Prior work has suggested that IB is directly related to regional scatterer density while its CV could be induced by local myocardial strain. The purpose of this study was to further test this hypothesis by simultaneously recording cyclic changes in IB and myocardial strain in normal, acutely ischemic and reperfused myocardium.
