Tissue doppler imaging for the assessment of left ventricular function in an older population
Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI) is an established tool in the echocardiographic assessment of cardiac function. Longitudinal cardiac fibres are particularly sensitive to fibrosis, hypertrophy and ischaemia, and impaired long-axis function can therefore provide a sensitive index for the assessment of myocardial function. This thesis is based on clinical and echocardiographic data from a population-based prospective cohort study of older adults in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), the...[Show more]
