Exercise echocardiography is a versatile technique that includes not only two-dimensional imaging, but also Doppler of aortic, mitral, and tricuspid valves. Doppler echocardiography can be useful in the evaluation of global left ventricular systolic and diastolic function, valvular function, transvalvular gradients, and pulmonary artery pressure. The technique lends itself to the study of the cardiac response to exercise in a variety of disease states, including pulmonary, coronary artery, valvular, and congenital heart disease. We review our experience using agitated saline-enhanced Doppler of tricuspid insufficiency to determine pulmonary artery pressure throughout exercise in chronic lung disease.
