Two-dimensional echocardiographic calculation of left ventricular mass as recommended by the American Society of Echocardiography: correlation with autopsy and M-mode echocardiography.


The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) has recommended diastolic area length and truncated ellipsoid methods for estimating left ventricular (LV) mass by two-dimensional (2D) echocardiography. The major goals of this retrospective study were to (1) assess the correlation between ASE-recommended 2D and M-mode echo-derived measurements of LV mass, (2… (More)
