Suboptimal cardiovascular ultrasound imaging can produce transthoracic echocardiograms (TTEs) that are inconclusive, resulting in negative patient outcomes and financial implications such as added costs for more testing. See why cSound software-beamforming technology from GE Healthcare addresses these challenges to potentially lessen patient burden, lower costs and improve patient care.
Figure 1 from the guidelines, showing a side-by-side views of apical 4- and 2-chamber images, at rest and immediately post-exercise. In the four-chamber view, the left ventricle is shown on the left-hand side of the screen. With exercise, the LV cavity dilates (right quadrants) and there are regional wall motion abnormalities in the LAD territory.
