Derivation of the distensibility coefficient using tissue Doppler as a marker of arterial function.

Abstract

To date, the main cardiovascular application of TDI (tissue Doppler imaging) has been in myocardial evaluation. In the present study, we investigated the feasibility and reproducibility of assessing arterial elasticity using the DC (distensibility coefficient) measured by TDI, the correlation of this with the DC obtained by other methods and the DC in… (More)
