Vendor independent speckle tracking analysis to quantify cardiac wall motion in 2D ultrasound data
2D STRAIN*is a vendor independent, offline solution for the quantification of cardiac deformation. Detailed analysis of myocardial velocity, displacement, strain and strain rate is performed based on 2D speckle tracking in the long or short axis views of the left ventricle, in the right ventricle or in the left atrium. Basic parameter assessment as well as advanced quantifications, together with comprehensive result export options, make 2D STRAIN suitable for research and routine use.
Versatile analysis of left ventricle, right ventricle or left atrium
One application for a variety of indications
Regional myocardial function analysis
Assess diastolic function
Early detection of heart function impairment in cardiomyopathies
Monitor subclinical changes or therapy over time
Versatile analysis options
Analysis of LV, RV and Left Atrium
Bull‘s eye analysis based on long axis or short axis views
Same analysis independent of ultrasound system
Advanced cardiac motion assessment
Semi-automatic initial contour proposal
Extensive export options for further post-processing
Regional analysis of velocity, displacement, strain and strain rate
Advanced motion visualization
Studies have shown that using left ventricular ejection fraction has limitations for selecting patients who will benefit from an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator, a device that can shock patients out of a dangerously fast heart rhythm. Using 2D CPA we can look at differences in the timing of peak strain in each region of the left ventricle which we believe can demonstrate scar burden.

“I have used the TOMTEC Image-Arena platform for strain quantification in fetal and pediatric research. I found the 2D strain quantification algorithm user-friendly and extremely time efficient; a few easy steps produce the results in a nice visual graphic. I especially like the feature of being able to export the results quickly into well-formatted Excel sheets. This has allowed me to compile complex and extensive strain data for quick data analysis.”
