Influence of measurement inaccuracies on determination of left ventricular mass by M mode echocardiography.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To determine to what extent inaccuracies in measuring the end diastolic diameter of the left ventricle, the interventricular septum, and the posterior wall, by M mode echocardiography influence the left ventricular mass calculated by the Devereux's formula. DESIGN Mathematical model. RESULTS Relatively small measurement inaccuracies such as 5… (More)
