XStrain™ provides an innovative tool for the mechanical assessment of the heart's wall motion. Therefore, it can provide quantitative support to standard stress echo examinations and can be used when examining and monitoring patients with systemic disorders or congenital pathologies in order to identify early signs of changes in cardiac wall motion. When recognized early, further myocardial damage may be prevented by changes in life style and/or pharmacologic treatment.
XStrain™ is 2D imaging based and therefore angle independent. The 2D based technology makes real-time XStrain™ analysis possible without reducing the 2D frame rate. It also allows XStrain™ to measure not only the longitudinal mechanics of the heart, but also the radial and circumferential mechanics of the LV.
While using a sophisticated and patented border-tracking algorithm to produce results, XStrain™ is surprisingly easy to learn and use. It is fully integrated into Esaote’s MyLab™ platform and has been developed with a ‘one window’ user interface.
Esaote has made examinations with this premium technology possible for all levels of cardiovascular ultrasound practices and departments.
As part of Esaote's MyLab™ Advanced Cardiac Package, XStrain™ can play an important role in the comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of cardiology patients:
- XStrain™ is able to follow the myocardial borders over time, and therefore allows visualization and easy detection of asynergic regions
- XStrain™ is not angle dependent and has a higher capability to get information about the radial velocity, especially of the lateral heart walls
