"Feasibility of the techniques has been demonstrated, but the main barrier to their introduction is the time-consuming nature of the post-processing and analysis. In addition to this, each technique also has its own specific drawbacks; tissue Doppler is limited by the inherent angle-dependency of any Doppler-derived data, whereas for speckle-tracking excellent 2D image quality must be obtained."

Os europeus ainda têm sérias dúvidas.
