Background: Many echocardiographic parameters have been proposed to evaluate right ventricular (RV) systolic function. We comprehensively assessed a wide range of quantitative echocardiographic parameters in a single cohort compared with same-day cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). Methods and results: 92 subjects were examined prospectively: Group 1 consisted of 46 healthy controls (21 males, 33.4 ± 11.4 years), Group 2 consisted of 46 patients (20 males, 38.5 ± 18.9 years) undergoing RV functional assessment by CMR (1.5 T). Echocardiography was performed on the same day as CMR; fractional area change (RVFAC), myocardial performance index via spectral Doppler (RVMPI), RVMPI via Doppler tissue imaging (RVMPI-DTI), peak systolic myocardial velocity by DTI (RVSm), tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE), speckle tracking strain, and three dimensional right ventricular ejection fraction (3DE-RV). Linear regression, Bland-Altman and receiver-operator-characteristic (ROC) analyses were performed. At ROC analysis, the most predictive echocardiographic methods were; RVFAC (AUC = 0.892), RVMPI (AUC 0.785), TAPSE (AUC 0.849) and 3DE-RV (AUC 0.909). 3DE-RV appeared the most accurate compared to CMR, although underestimated true RV volumes. Conclusion: As compared to CMR; 3DE-RV, RVFAC, TAPSE and RVMPI were the most reliable predictors of RV function. These parameters can be recommended for clinical use.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
