Sample text

It is recommended that left ventricular (LV) internal diameters and wall thickness are measured by M-mode since they show excellent temporal resolution and may complement 2D images in separating structures such as trabeculae adjacent to the posterior wall, false tendons, or the moderator band next to the septum from the endocardium [1]. Linear measurements from M-mode have proven to be reproducible with low intra- and inter-observer variability. However, even with 2D guidance, it may not be possible to align the M-mode cursor perpendicular to the long axis of the ventricle, which is mandatory to obtain a true minor axis dimension measurement.

The theory behind the ability to measure strain by TDI is that myocardial velocity gradient is an estimate of SR, and therefore strain can be calculated as the temporal integral of SR. SR is calculated from the difference in velocity (V) between two sample volumes (1 and 2) relative to the distance (D) between them. 12 Relationship between velocity, displacement, strain rate, and strain. Velocity difference between two adjacent regions implies compression or lengthening of the tissue in between.

As microbubbles are red blood cell tracers, the product of peak microbubble intensity (representative of myocardial blood volume) and their rate of appearance (representative of blood velocity) equal myocardial blood flow. 6 Left: Non-contrast-enhanced echocardiographic image showing poor apical and lateral endocardial delineation in a patient. Right: Contrast-enhanced image from the same patient. Continuous low mechanical index imaging with left ventricular opacification provides excellent endocardial border delineation and differentiation between left ventricular cavity and myocardium in the apical and lateral walls.
