Which echocardiographic Doppler left ventricular diastolic function measurements are most feasible in the clinical echocardiographic laboratory?



Which echocardiographic Doppler left ventricular diastolic function measurements are most feasible in the clinical echocardiographic laboratory?



American Journal of Cardiology 94(8): 1099-1101



Numerous measures of left ventricular diastolic function are currently in clinical use. To determine which echo-Doppler left ventricular diastolic function measurements are most feasible in the clinical echocardiographic laboratory, the success rate, recording time taken by the sonographer, and inter-reader variability were calculated for transmitral valve inflow, pulmonary vein flow, tissue Doppler imaging, and color M-mode flow propagation velocity in 80 inpatients.
