Cardiovascular death is one of the leading causes worldwide; an accurate identification
followed by diagnosing the cardiovascular disease increases the chance of a better recovery.
Among different demonstrated strategies, imaging on cardiac infections yields a visible result and
highly reliable compared to other analytical methods. Two-dimensional spot tracking imaging is
the emerging new technology that has been used to study the function and structure of the heart and
test the deformation and movement of the myocardium. Particularly, it helps to capture the images
of each segment in different directions of myocardial strain values, such as valves of radial strain,
longitudinal strain, and circumferential strain. In this overview, we discussed the imaging of infections
in the heart by using the two-dimensional spot tracking.
