Abstract

A method is proposed for a quick echocardiographic Doppler evaluation of the pressure half-time in mitral and tricuspid valve stenosis, based on a simply designed slide rule. In comparison to the utilization of totally manual or semicomputerized techniques, this method allows faster and more precise determination of pressure half-time and relative valve area on the echocardiographic M-mode stripchart recording.
