BACKGROUND Clinical decision making in Kawasaki disease relies on measurements of the coronary arteries obtained by 2-dimensional echocardiography. Z scores relating measured values to independent variables are invaluable in ensuring the accurate and consistent treatment of patients with Kawasaki disease. METHODS The right coronary artery (RCA), left main coronary artery (LMCA), and left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery were measured in 432 normal digital echocardiograms from a… CONTINUE READING
