Table 2 Correlation of baseline strain parameters with LVEF and IS

From: Comparison of global myocardial strain assessed by cardiovascular magnetic resonance tagging and feature tracking to infarct size at predicting remodelling following STEMI

  Infarct size (IS) Ejection Fraction (LVEF)
Tagging (n = 64)
 GCS −0.72** 0.70**
Feature Tracking
 GCS −0.61** 0.71**
 GLS −0.62** 0.64**
  1. Abbreviations: EF (Ejection Fraction), GCS (Global Circumferential Strain), GLS (Global Longitudinal Strain), IS (Infarct Size)
  2. Note: Spearman’s Rank coefficient (ρ) for IS, Pearson’s correlation coefficient (r) for EF
  3. **p < 0.01
