In order to establish which indices of early diastolic function obtained by Doppler echocardiography and the time/activity curve of 99mTc radionuclide angiography are the most useful clinically, the two investigations were performed in 41 subjects aged 52 +/- 15 years. The maximum velocity of LV filling and mitral E wave provided the best correlation (r = 0.48); the Doppler A wave did not correlate with its scintigraphic homologue. The correlations with the morphological data (mass, thickness… CONTINUE READING
