Multilayer longitudinal and circumferential strains determined by two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2D-STE) in diabetic patient with acute hyperglycemia. a Subendocardial (Endo), mid-myocardial(Mid) and subepicardial(Epi) layers of longitudinal strain assessed in apical long-axis views; b Endo, Mid and Epi layers of circumferential strain at base (mitral valve) evaluated in parasternal short-axis view
