Assessing Left Ventricular Size and Systolic Function


Learn how to correctly trace the blood-tissue interface to obtain a quantitative biplane ejection fraction with and without the use of sonographic contrast. Correlate your findings with visual estimation to improve quality control and estimation of systolic function at the point of care.
