BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to test the accuracy of an automated 3-dimensional (3D) proximal isovelocity surface area (PISA) (in vitro and patients) and stroke volume technique (patients) to assess mitral regurgitation (MR) severity using real-time volume color flow Doppler transthoracic echocardiography. METHODS AND RESULTS Using an in vitro(More)
Catheters are routinely inserted via vessels to cavities of the heart during fluoroscopic image guided interventions for electrophysiology (EP) procedures such as ablation. During such interventions, the catheter undergoes nonrigid deformation due to physician interaction, patient's breathing, and cardiac motions. EP clinical applications can benefit from(More)
BACKGROUND Accurate assessment of mitral regurgitation (MR) severity is crucial for clinical decision-making and optimizing patient outcomes. Recent advances in real-time three dimensional (3D) echocardiography provide the option of real-time full volume color Doppler echocardiography (FVCD) measurements. This makes it practical to quantify MR by(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare the feasibility, accuracy, and reproducibility of automated quantification of mitral inflow and aortic stroke volumes (SVs) using real-time three-dimensional volume color-flow Doppler transthoracic echocardiography (RT-VCFD), with cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging as the reference method. METHODS In(More)
We present the first system for measurement of proximal isovelocity surface area (PISA) on a 3D ultrasound acquisition using modified ultrasound hardware, volumetric image segmentation and a simple efficient workflow. Accurate measurement of the PISA in 3D flow through a valve is an emerging method for quantitatively assessing cardiac valve regurgitation(More)
Valvular heart diseases are recognized as a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. Accurate quantification of cardiac flow volumes in patients is essential in evaluation of the progression of the disease and in determination of clinical options. Recent advances in the real-time 3D full volume echocardiography have enabled high frame rate acquisition(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this investigation was to test the hypothesis that flow patterns in the right ventricle are abnormal in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). High-resolution echocardiographic contrast particle imaging velocimetry was used to investigate rotation intensity and kinetic energy dissipation of right ventricular (RV) flow in(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to assess the accuracy, feasibility, and reproducibility of determining stroke volume from a novel 3-dimensional (3D) color Doppler flow quantification method for mitral valve (MV) inflow and left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) outflow at different stroke volumes when compared with the actual flow rate in a pumped(More)
BACKGROUND Echocardiographic quantification of mitral regurgitation (MR) can be challenging if the valve geometry is significantly altered. Our aim was to compare the quantification of MR by the recently developed real time three-dimensional (3D) volume color flow Doppler (RT-VCFD) method to the conventional two-dimensional (2D) echocardiographic methods(More)
