We have previously described the use of transesophageal echocardiography with automated border detection to quantify regional aortic elastic properties. The purpose of this study was to validate this technique further by measuring regional variations of aortic elastic properties and comparing them with previously published data acquired by invasive methods. In nine anesthetized, closed-chest dogs, aortic pressure and lumenal area (transesophageal echocardiography with automated border detection… CONTINUE READING
