We present and discuss a method to infer non invasively information on the fiber architecture in real LV walls. The method post–processes the echocardiographic data acquired by three–dimensional Speckle Tracking Echocardiography (3DSTE) through a MatLab–based protocol, already presented, discussed and val- idated in . Our results reveals the difference between the role of endocardial and epicardial principal strain lines, at the systolic peak, and set the bases for possible future investigations aimed to analyze the onset of specific cardiac diseases through noninvasive analysis of LV fiber architecture
