In this review, we demonstrate the normal patterns of flow and some quantitative applications of Doppler echocardiography combined with two-dimensional imaging. Flow information can be accurately measured and valve gradient calculations can be made in patients with stenotic diseases. Further corroborative work in this area is necessary before definitive statements can be made, but this appears to be a promising noninvasive technique which can be applied at the bedside or in an ambulatory setting with a fair degree of confidence.
