Comparison of 2D and 3D echocardiographic measurement of mitral-aortic angle


The angle between the mitral and aortic valves (MAA) facilitates blood flow ejection in physiological condition. Also the narrowing of MAA increases the risk of systolic anterior movement. By convention, MAA is measured in the 2D echo image (2DE) representing the 3-chambers view (3-ch). However, changes in 3-ch view selection may lead to significant changes… (More)
