Comparison of quantitative Doppler with magnetic resonance imaging for assessment of the severity of mitral regurgitation.

Abstract

We compared quantitative Doppler echocardiography and cine magnetic resonance imaging for calculation of regurgitant volume and regurgitant fraction in mitral regurgitation. A good correlation was present between the 2 methods with some scatter in patients with severe mitral regurgitation and high regurgitant volumes.
