Ejection fraction (EF) is a measurement of how much blood the left ventricle pumps out with each contraction, represented as a percentage. With each heartbeat, 60% of the blood in the left ventricle is pushed out.
Ejection Fraction is usually assessed in the left ventricle because it does the most of the work in the body. However, recent study suggests that while evaluating EF, the right ventricle should not be overlooked.
A number of imaging modalities can be used to provide a precise reading of the left ventricular Ejection Fraction.
The echo-cardiogram, which employs sound waves to produce pictures of the heart, is one of the most frequent EF testing methods.
To illustrate how blood flows between the heart valves, echo examinations are frequently paired with Doppler imaging equipment.
Our medical Research and Development team constantly recommends the 3 in 1 Color Doppler Wireless Ultrasound Scanner 3in1-CLC3CD to cardiologists and primary care doctors.
The 3in1-CLC3CD produces clear pictures of the heart’s chambers and valves using high-frequency sound waves ranging from 3.5 MHz to 7.5 MHz, allowing clinicians to observe how the heart is working.
Indeed, studies have shown that Research shows that the volume of blood within a ventricle at the end of the diastole is the end-diastolic volume (EDV). Similarly, the end-systolic volume is the amount of blood remaining in a ventricle at the end of systole (contraction) (ESV). The stroke volume is the difference between EDV and ESV (SV).
The calculation of LVEF is important for diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic purposes, and a quick, accurate, repeatable, and non-invasive technique would be ideal.
Ultrasonography is highly needed during the measurement of ejection fraction, especially that Left ventricular ejection fraction (EF) is an important and sensitive parameter in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with coronary heart disease.
