Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Left ventricular systolic function was studied in 40 patients with atrial fibrillation using a matrix-array transducer, which enables 2 simultaneous orthogonal views to be obtained in a biplane mode. Bland-Altman analysis showed excellent correlation and agreement between the systolic parameters of a single beat with identical RR1 and RR2 intervals and the measured average value over all cardiac cycles.
