Doppler ultrasound color M-mode imaging (CMM) has been proposed as a noninvasive means of quantifying diastolic function by measuring flow propagation into the left ventricle. However, the relationship between CMM-derived parameters and underlying fluid dynamics is still unclear. The purpose of this study was to couple high-resolution velocimetry measurements with ultrasound Doppler and CMM measurements in order to shed light on the relationship between CMM flow propagation and inflow dynamics… CONTINUE READING
