Abstract

Stage A and B heart failure (HF) include asymptomatic patients without and with structural cardiac disorder, respectively. Asymptomatic left ventricular (LV) dysfunction represents an early stage of HF that should be recognized to prevent overt HF development. Echocardiography plays a pivotal role in assessment of cardiac structure and function and represents the ideal imaging technique for screening in the general population, thanks to its availability, feasibility, and low cost. Traditional echocardiography, with LV systolic and diastolic function and cardiac remodeling assessment, is usually performed. Development of new technologies may offer additional information and insights in detection of early LV dysfunction.
