Introduction Serial measurements of left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF) are commonly performed in cancer patients to monitor cardiotoxic effects of chemotherapy. Similarly, patients with other cardiac conditions, including valvular

aortic dissection. However, clinicians encounter coronary heart disease and congestive heart failure far more often, and rapid evaluation of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) is very important in these patients because of its diagnostic and

Introduction Two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is a useful non-invasive method for estimating left ventricular (LV) volumes and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). The recommended Simpson biplane method of disks has
