OBJECTIVE To investigate the influence of length difference in left ventricular (LV) long axis between the apical four-chamber and two-chamber views on measurements of LV volumes and ejection fraction (EF). METHODS Seven hundred consecutive cancer patients underwent contrast echocardiography from July 2010 to May 2014. All patients received the… CONTINUE READING
