Description

In this manuscript we summarize many of the aspects of a typical diagnostic echocardiographic examination that were presented during a live demonstration at the plenary session of the 23rd Annual Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation. Ultrasonic imaging of the heart (echocardiography) has become an important tool in the diagnosis of heart disease. Currently most heart patients undergo an echocardiographic examination as part of their diagnostic evaluation. This method of imaging offers the physician a rapid, quantitative, and cost-effective assessment of cardiac anatomy arid function. Below we present some of the typical images obtained and discuss some of the measurements performed for diagnostic use in a clinical echocardiographic exam.
