OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to develop and test a simplified echocardiographic method to calculate left ventricular volume. BACKGROUND This method was based on the assumption that the ratio of the left ventricular epicardial long-axis dimension to the epicardial short-axis dimension was constant throughout the cardiac cycle. With use of this constant ratio, the method developed to calculate left ventricular volume at a given point in the cardiac cycle required the left… CONTINUE READING
