Example end-systolic short-axis Err, Ecc, and Ell strain maps. Example end-systolic short-axis Err, Ecc, and Ell strain maps at basal, mid-ventricular, and apical locations measured using 3D cine DENSE in a normal mouse. Fairly uniform shortening is observed for the circumferential and longitudinal strains, while fairly uniform lengthening is observed for radial strain.
