Assessment of ventricular function, especially in the right ventricle (RV), is important for cardiac evaluation in Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF). MRI tissue tracking (TT) is a recently introduced technique for analyzing myocardial strain directly from the cine images. In this study, we evaluate the feasibility of using TT strain analysis for measuring myocardial contractility in ToF and compare the results to measurements from the more established strain-encoding (SENC) MRI technique. The results showed that TT strain analysis allows for fast assessment of heart contractility in ToF with global strain measurements that are insignificantly different from those from SENC analysis.
