Proper Echocardiographic Measurements: How and Why Proper Echocardiographic Measurements
Proper Echocardiographic Measurements: How and Why is a guideline-based product focused on the methods used to obtain measurements, including explanations describing why such methods are appropriate. This educational tool comprises a combination of didactic lectures and clinical questions. It can be used as a review for experienced sonographers, as well as a training tool for new or early-career sonographers and others who are interested in the practice of cardiovascular ultrasound. Topics include imaging measurements (2D vs. M-mode, LV linear dimensions, basal cardiac measurements, LV volume, LA volume, inferior vena cava, and right ventricle) as well as velocity measurements (spectral Doppler, mitral inflow, mitral annulus, pulmonary vein, mitral stenosis, tricuspid regurgitation, aortic valve, and HOCM).
