Background: The radial long-axis orientation for the measurement of left ventricular (LV) volume and mass has been shown to have advantages over the short-axis orientation. Previous work has highlighted the need for technique specific normal ranges. The purpose of this study was therefore to establish normal ranges of LV volume and mass for the radial long-axis orientation. Materials and methods: Forty normal subjects (20 males, average age 32.3, age range 19–58; 20 females, average age 37.4… CONTINUE READING
