Cardiovascular death is one of the leading causes worldwide, and 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 used to evaluate the function and structure of the heart and helps to test the deformation and movement of the myocardium. Particularly, it helps to capture the image of each segment in different directions of myocardial strain values, which includes radial strain value, longitudinal strain value and circumferential strain value. In this overview, we discussed the imaging of infection in the heart by using the two-dimensional spot tracking.
