Abstract

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to estimate the normal ranges of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based feature tracking (FT) and to identify sources of variations. Similar analyses were also performed for strain encoding, displacement encoding with stimulated echoes, and myocardial tagging. BACKGROUND: MRI-FT is a novel technique for quantification of myocardial deformation using MRI cine images. However, the reported 95% confidence intervals (CIs) from the 2 largest studies have no overlaps. METHODS: Four databases (EMBASE, SCOPUS, PUBMED, and Web of Science) were systematically searched for MRI strains of the left (LV) and right (RV) ..
