7-3, Video 7-3). In this view, the P2 scallop is seen in the middle of the image sector, whereas A2 is seen to the right. It also becomes evident that the anterior mitral leaflet forms the superior posterior portion of the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT). The anterior-posterior mitral annular diameter is measured in this view, and CFD is again used to document the presence of regurgitation or stenosis. By rotating the probe from left to right, a sweeping motion across the valve can be created, enabling the echocardiographer to inspect the A1-P1 and A3-P3 scallops of the mitral valve, respectively.

5 to 1 cm proximal to the opening of the aortic valve yields the LVOT VTI and blood flow velocity (Fig. 7-16, B). Next, calculate the area of the LVOT by measuring its diameter (d) (Fig. 7-16, C) and multiplying (d/2)2 by pi (π). The aortic valve area (AVA) is calculated by dividing the LVOT stroke volume (SV) by the VTI of the aortic valve. Left-sided cardiac output (CO) can be estimated by multiplying the LVOT stroke volume by the heart rate (HR). AVA = (Area LVOT × VTI LVOT )/VTI AV therefore, AVA = π (d LVOT /2)2 × VTI LVOT ) / VTI AV COLV = SVLVOT × HR where SVLVOT = π (dLVOT /2)2 × VTILVOT therefore, COLV = π (dLVOT /2)2 × VTILVOT × HR Right Atrium, Inferior Vena Cava, Superior Vena Cava, Interatrial Septum Examination of the right atrium (RA) begins with the ME four-chamber view (see Fig.

Alternatively, ultrasound energy may be trapped within a very thin object. ” This vibration or rattling of the target causes bright targets to appear but limits interrogation in the far field beyond the reverberating target. Attenuation As discussed in Chapter 2, ultrasound energy may be absorbed (converted to heat) and reflected by tissues and other targets. As ultrasound is propagated through tissues, these interactions cause ultrasound to lose signal strength, making images appear faint and bright tissues appear dark in the far field.
