Tissue-tracking, a post-processing technique using routinely-acquired cine images, can assess strain, a multidimensional measure of myocardial contraction. In this prospective study, we measured left ventricular and right ventricular peak global radial, circumferential and longitudinal strain in 28 healthy adolescents ages 12-14 years. The data from this study provide normative global strain values to be used for future clinical and translational CMR studies.
