Sample text

In the early days of M-mode echocardiography, the mitral valve was frequently the only discernible cardiac structure identified,1 thus the diagnosis of mitral stenosis could be made reliably by non-invasive means. 2–7 The notorious mitral valve prolapse syndrome was recognized and perpetuated by echocardiography. Doppler echocardiography together with two-dimensional imaging has provided the physiological assessment of mitral valvular disease for quantifying the degree of stenosis and regurgitation.

Consistent use of the same sector orientation and depth of field allows rapid recognition of cardiac anatomy and abnormalities of cardiac dimension, once expertise is gained in transesophageal echocardiography. When the transducer is passed to approximately 50–55 cm from the incisor teeth, the probe is in the stomach and imaging may begin. Starting the examination in the stomach gives the operator the knowledge and assurance that there is no gross esophageal or gastric pathology, if the probe passes without significant complication.
