Preejectional left ventricular wall motion in normal subjects using Doppler tissue imaging and correlation with ejection fraction.

Abstract

Relations have been demonstrated between the preejection period (PEP) and indexes of left ventricular (LV) systolic function. Doppler tissue M-mode imaging has the capability to measure wall velocities and to display as colored strips within the walls velocity reversals representing changes in direction of wall motion. To document LV preejectional wall… (More)
