Pixel Tracking

Pixel tracking is a new echocardiographic technique which quantitatively analyzes segmental myocardial function by tracking natural acoustic markers in 2D echocardiography. The discrimination between transmurality states of myocardial infarction is made possible by the frame to frame tracking of these acoustic markers in two-dimensional echocardiographic images in analyzing myocardial deformation.
