Color Doppler assessment of mitral regurgitation with orthogonal planes.


We evaluated 147 patients with adequate color Doppler and angiographic studies for mitral regurgitation. Sixty-five patients had no mitral regurgitation by both color Doppler and angiography and 82 patients had mitral regurgitation by both techniques. Thus the sensitivity and specificity of color Doppler for the detection of mitral regurgitation was 100… (More)
