Prolonged vortex formation during the ejection period in the left ventricle with low ejection fraction: a study by vector flow mapping


Vortex formation in the left ventricle (LV) can be visualized by novel vector flow mapping (VFM) based on color Doppler and speckle tracking data. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of a vortex during the ejection period using VFM. Color Doppler images were obtained to produce VFM images in 80 subjects (20 normal, 29 with dilated… (More)
