Speckle tracking allows estimating tissue motion with ultrasound. Since tracking quality directly depends on image quality, several preprocessing techniques have been used to improve image quality and ease the tracking problem. The objective of this chapter is therefore to review such techniques and to provide some qualitative guidelines as to in which conditions they should and should not be employed.
