Quantitative Echocardiographic Features of ARVCD

Imaging Arvc With Echocardiography

RV dilatation is a common finding in individuals with ARVC D 2,4,5 . The echocardiographic study from the North American ARVC D Registry provided potential quantitative parameters to differentiate probands from matched controls 3 . Table 14.2 shows the mean RV dimensions at end-systole and end-diastole in probands and matched controls. An enlarged right ventricular outflow tract RVOT was found in 100 of probands. RVOT long axis dimension of gt 30mm had a sensitivity of 89 and specificity of 84...
