Effect of beam directional alterations on left ventricular shortening fraction.


In this study, the dependence on beam direction of the echocardiographically derived fractional shortening of the left ventricular minor axis was evaluated. A directionally oriented, steerable cursor was used to select M-mode lines from a 2-dimensional image at the chordal level. Seven M-mode traces were derived from each image, 1 along the true ventricular… (More)
