This TTE clip demonstrates what is meant by myocardium that is 'moving' but not 'thickening'. You can see how the inferior wall seems to come nearer to the anterior, but it does not thicken which is indicative of ischemia or scar. In this case, the patient was admitted with an acute coronary syndrome and was found to have profound multivessel CAD including disease resulting in inferior wall ischemia.
