Pulmonary Hypertension Guidelines For Echo: And How To Measure RVSP You probably don’t need to be told that echocardiography plays a major role in the noninvasive assessment of pulmonary hypertension. Echo is used to not only screen for the disease, but to determine right and left heart structure and function as well as monitor the progress of patients undergoing … [Read more...] about Pulmonary Hypertension Guidelines For Echo: And How To Measure RVSP
4 Most Common Errors We Make In Evaluating Aortic Valve Velocity In Echocardiography I don’t know about you, but aortic stenosis cases seem to be my bread and butter. It seems like I see more patients with aortic stenosis than any other pathology. Granted, some of that may be attributed to the the region where my echo lab is located of course. Regardless, aortic stenosis … [Read more...] about 4 Most Common Errors In Evaluating Aortic Valve Velocity
Axial Resolution In Ultrasound: What Is It And Why It’s Important So you probably hear a lot about resolution. And you should, because in ultrasound, we care a lot about resolution. The better the resolution in ultrasound, the better quality images we get. And the better quality images we get, the more accurate information we’re able to give the physicians. What Is … [Read more...] about Axial Resolution In Ultrasound: What Is It And What It Does
Spectral Doppler : What It Is And How's It Used In Ultrasound! The use of Doppler is the backbone of what we do in the world of ultrasound. There are two major types of Doppler that we use in our line of work. One is spectral Doppler and the other is Color Doppler. And if you’ve spent any time around an echo lab or ultrasound lab, then you’ve definitely heard about these two … [Read more...] about SPECTRAL DOPPLER : What It Is And How’s It Used In Ultrasound!
How To Calculate Aortic Valve Area Using The Continuity Equation Don't be threatened by using the continuity equation to calculate aortic valve area. Even though most of our echo machines will calculate it for us these days, it's still important to know how it's used. Interested in knowing more about calculating aortic valve area with echocardiography? Keep reading. What … [Read more...] about How To Calculate Aortic Valve Area Using The Continuity Equation
