Present Applications in Cardiology



Research on new clinical methods and development of related instrumentation, requires understanding of current ultrasound techniques and their limitations. A review of A-scan and Time-Motion recording in medical applications is given. The important mitral valve motion presentation and the ultrasonic detection of pericardial effusion are discussed in particular. Reference is made to clinical recordings. Two special cases out of a series of 110 patients with various cardiac malfunctions studied by ultrasound in our clinic so far are further described in appendix C and D. A brief discussion on present Doppler applications concludes this chapter.
