«Triple-M Imaging» is a novel method for measuring heart motion
in echocardiograms independent from borders, Doppler and angles. From a single,
conventional grayscale dataset, Multiscale Motion Mapping is able to quantify
The algorithm is feasible off- and online in digital echocardiograms of a broad
spectrum of echo machines and is relatively robust to noise. It complements and expands
current methods of echo quantification, namely tissue Doppler, border detection, and
subjective visual analysis.
