In the absence of GLS by STE, quantification of LV longitudinal function using mitral annular displacement by M-mode echocardiography and/or peak systolic velocity (s') of the mitral annulus by pulsed wave TDI is recommended.[7] Numerous reports about LV GLS in adults those received anthracyclines' treatment existed;[16],[17] however, only a few such studies have been conducted in children.[18],[19] Results mostly showed that LV GLS was sensitive enough to identify subclinical cardiotoxicity.
All cases underwent the standard echocardiographic assessment including 2D (two-dimensional), PW (pulsed-wave) Doppler color Doppler and M-mode echocardiography. The visual EF was calculated by assessing the parasternal long and short-axis, apical 4- and 2-chamber views through at least three cardiac cycles.
Cardiac frequency, obtained by M-mode echocardiography and automatically estimated by the cardiac calculation software, declines as gestation progresses and increases during activity, with accelerations of 25 to 40 beats per minute (bpm) of approximately 30 seconds duration.

Systolic (AoS) and diastolic (AoD) diameters of the ascending aorta were calculated at the area of 3 cm above the aortic valve in the parasternal long-axis view of the LV, using M-mode echocardiography, and defined as the average of measurements of three cardiac consecutive cycles.
M-mode echocardiography measurements were obtained from the level of the posterior mitral valve, according to the recommendations of the American Society of Echocardiography [10].
M-mode echocardiography of DCM associated heart failure dogs revealed significantly increased (P<0.01) LVEdD (61.46 [+ or -] 1.20 mm) and LVEsD (54.14 [+ or -] 1.22 mm) values when compared with mean values of healthy dogs.
