How to calculate left ventricular mass in routine practice? An echocardiographic versus cardiac magnetic resonance study
Comment calculer la masse ventriculaire gauche en routine? Étude comparative échocardiographie-imagerie par résonance magnétique

Figure 1

Figure 1 : 

Different echocardiographic methods for left ventricular mass measurement. For each method (American Society of Echocardiography [ASE], Penn, two-dimensional [2D]), harmonic imaging and fundamental imaging were used. Ao: aorta; IVS: interventricular septum; LA: left atrium; LVD: left ventricular diameter; PW: posterior wall.

Figure 2 : 

Bland and Altman analysis of interobserver reproducibility using fundamental imaging and harmonic imaging, according to echocardiographic modalities (M-mode imaging or two-dimensional [2D] imaging). Dashed lines, 1.96 standard deviations from the mean. ASE: American Society of Echocardiography; LV: left ventricular; O1: observer 1; O2: observer 2.
