Figure 1

Schematic representation of a 2D long-axis echography of the heart illustrating the region of analysis (S1) in the mid-apex interventricular septum from which the measurements will be taken. Values obtained will be normalized for blood echoreflectivity assessed along the same axis inside the left ventricle (S2). LV = Left Ventricle; LA = Left Atrium; AO = Aorta. S1 and S2 indicate the regions of interest for the ultrasonic tissue characterization (myocardium and blood, respectively).
