This paper is aimed to evaluate the accuracy and influence factors about quantitative assessment of valve regurgitation using flow convergence (FC) method with real-time tri-plane echocardiography. By an in vitro model made by ourselves we observed the areas of the FC of the regurgitant orifice under different diameters with the real-time tri-plane… (More)
