abstract

  • Determination of ejection fraction by three-dimensional echocardiography yields results comparable to those obtained by equilibrium radionuclide angiography and is substantially superior to all two-dimensional echocardiographic methods. Therefore, three-dimensional echocardiography may be used for accurate serial quantification of left ventricular function as an alternative to equilibrium radionuclide angiography.
