Abstract

Measurement of myocardial global longitudinal strain (GLS) is no longer a research tool. Rather, GLS is now used for risk assessment and management of patients with a wide variety of clinical disorders. GLS is clearly a useful supplement to routine quantitative analysis of left ventricular performance along with ejection fraction and left ventricular diameters.
