Figure 6

Left ventricular diastolic function can be assessed with mitral inflow velocity and mitral annular velocity. Mitral inflow velocities obtained by pulsed-wave Doppler technique (A) and their schematic diagram. Peak mitral inflow velocity during early diastole (E wave), peak mitral inflow velocity at atrial contraction (A wave), mitral deceleration time (DT), duration of A wave (Adur). Mitral annular velocities obtained by tissue Doppler echocardiography with e’ velocity as the early diastolic velocity and a’ velocity as the late diastolic velocity (B).
