Can myocardial strain differentiate hypertrophic from infiltrative etiology of a thickened septum?

Septal systolic strain measurements showed reduced longitudinal function but its localized nature failed to demonstrate radial disturbances in patients with pathologically thickened septum. No difference was found in systolic strain between patients according to the etiology of septal thickness. This limitation might be either technical or is explained by the maintained radial function in all patient groups.
