Abstract

In this study, the dependence on beam direction of the echocardlographlcally derived fractional shortening of the left ventricular minor axis was evaluated. A directtonally oriented, steerable cursor was used to select M-mode lines from a 2-dimensional image at the chordal level. Seven M-mode traces were derived from each image, 1 along the true ventricular meridian and 3 at known deviations on either side of the meridian. M-mode traces, thus derived, all appeared acceptable for measuring wall or cavity dimensions. Results indicate a progressive increase in shortening fraction (p
