Tei Index Obtained from Tissue Doppler Imaging : Correlation with Ntprobnp Levels in Patients with Dilated Cardiomiopathy


The myocardial performance index (Tei index) determined by the pulsed Doppler is a simple and noninvasive measurement for assessing global left ventricular (LV) function. This index can also be obtained by tissue Doppler imaging (Tei-TDI). The purpose of our study was to assess the relationship between Tei-TDI and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide… (More)
