Color kinesis is a new echocardiographic technique that aids in the assessment of global and regional left ventricular performance during either systole or diastole. Color kinesis uses automated border detection technology based on backscatter data to display both the magnitude and timing of endocardial motion in real time. The color kinesis display superimposes a color overlay on the two-dimensional echocardiographic image; the number of color pixels represents the magnitude of endocardial motion, while the different colors represent the timing of endocardial motion according to a predefined color scheme. Because color kinesis is an operator-dependent technique, the steps involved in performing a technically adequate study will be reviewed as well as the pitfalls and technical limitations. The potential clinical applications of color kinesis will also be discussed.
