In order to assess the accuracy and reproducibility of the proposed American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) method for measuring left ventricular dimensions on M-mode echocardiograms, we measured the end-diastolic (Dd) and end-systolic (Ds) dimensions by the ASE method and our current technique in 50 normal subjects and 24 patients without coronary… CONTINUE READING
