We developed an automated mitral annular tracking method based on a digital processing of high frame rate cineloop images of 2-dimensional echocardiography. In this study, its feasibility and accuracy was validated in 11 healthy volunteers and 16 patients with left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. The mitral annular excursion measured by automated mitral annular tracking agreed well with that measured by 3-dimensional echocardiography and correlated with LV ejection fraction. The longitudinal… CONTINUE READING
