Fig. 2

Average LV longitudinal strain rate from 35 endurance athletes (a). Each point represents mean longitudinal strain rate at each point in the cardiac cycle corrected to end-systole, error bars represent 95 % confidence interval of mean strain. Peak systolic strain rate (SSR), early diastolic strain rate (EDSR) and late diastolic strain rate (LDSR). SSFP cine image at end diastole showing manually drawn endocardial and epicardial contours (b). Feature tracked end systolic image (c)
