Widespread myocardial dysfunction in COVID-19 patients, detected by myocardial strain imaging using 2-D speckle-tracking echocardiography.

Two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2-D STE) is a quantitative method to assess global and regional myocardial function and has been proved to be a sensitive tool to detect subclinical cardiac dysfunction in pathological conditions as hypertension, diabetes and coronary artery disease [1,2]. By using this method, Li et al. evaluated the cardiac function in patients with COVID-19.
