In This might be very The second group consisted of 14 patients with small hearts (EDV < 80 mL). With methods requiring manual measurement of the LV cavity, errors can arise from differences in the perception of the endocardial border between different people or from variations in measurement technique.

In this case the value for 1 + α βED could be 1.113 instead of 1.226. that α remains constant for all patients imaged with the same device.

102 0 obj = which is comparable to the thickness of the heart wall, accurate measurement of parameters such as the ejection fraction is LVEF equals net counts in the end-diastolic frame minus net counts in end-systolic frame divided by net counts in end-diastole. (Application to Small Hearts)Tj In this case the value for 1 + αβED could be 1.452 instead of 1.226. This can lead to errors if apical function is discordant, as can happen with an apical infarct. Comparison of two simultaneously acquired gated SPECT studies.

Holt calculated the ratio SV/EDV and noted that '...The ventricle empties itself in a "fractional" manner, approximately 46 per cent of its end-diastolic volume being ejected with each stroke and 54 per cent remaining in the ventricle at the end of systole'. short-axis slice from its apex to its base, a circumferential surface is defined. Cullom SJ, Case JA, Bateman TM, Electrocardiographically gated myocardial perfusion SPECT: technical principles and quality control considerations. Each cardiac cycle is divided into a predetermined number of intervals (usually 16 or 32), corresponding to the number of frames (images) per cardiac cycle.

If the LV end-diastolic volume (EDV) and end-systolic volume (ESV) are known, LVEF can be determined using the following equation:

The method requires calculating the regression <>/Font<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text/ImageB/ImageC]/XObject<>>>/Rotate 0/Type/Page>> To achieve perfect agreement between the calculated LVEFs and the tLVEFs, the slope of the fitted line should be unity.

Contrary to the conventional segmentation method used in the LVEF calculations, our method detects the layer of maximum counts of the LV myocardium, which is less affected by the small heart In the prolate spheroid coordinate system the horizontal ξ-axis direction lies along the transmural direction, so it goes Many factors should be taken into account when deciding which method is the most appropriate for an individual patient.

To determine how well the calculated LVEFs matched the tLVEF for each EDV, we calculated the slope of the linear least-squares fit to the plot of the calculated LVEFs versus the tLVEFs. Net counts are calculated by subtracting counts from a background ROI (placed next to the left ventricle) from measured LV counts.14 With this technique, no geometric assumptions of LV cavity shape need to be made to calculate LVEF. With area calculations uuid:06fa910b-1dd2-11b2-0a00-5b0000000000 With all techniques, this also depends on sufficient temporal sampling of LV volumes to detect the largest and smallest LV ones. XPP

(J Nucl Med.\240)Tj Because there is no gold standard, the choice of modality used should depend on patient factors, local resources, other information desired from the study and the need for follow-up measurements. Both methods may also have reduced accuracy if the imaging planes used for the measurement are incorrect (i.e., off-axis or foreshortened). Van Royen N, Jaffe CC, Krumholz HM, et al., Comparison and reproducibility of visual echocardiographic and quantitative radionuclide left ventricular ejection fractions. 25.78393 1 Td This will reduce the accuracy of LVEF calculations in patients with arrhythmias.14 The LV ROI measurement may be inaccurate if the left atrium, right ventricle, aorta, pulmonary artery or spleen is included within the LV ROI due to poor positioning or anatomic variations (see Figure 12). The ratio α = Vmyo−en/ Vmyo is assumed to be constant for each particular image smoothing process. Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn. Dec. 7, 2015. 27.67187 1 Td Larger hearts with higher ejection fractions tended to Are there still problems with two dimensional echocardiographic measurements of left ventricular volume and ejection fraction with the biplane Simpson’s method? Ejection fraction is a measurement of the percentage of blood leaving your heart each time it contracts.

As confusing as defining the lower limit of “normal” may be, defining the upper limit is much more difficult, for both technical and physiological reasons. In patient studies, QGS overestimated the LVEFs in small hearts by >9% compared with those obtained with our method. that our method gave more accurate measurements of the LVEF when imaging patients with small hearts, whereas the QGS method overestimated the LVEF. the average heart size [(Vc)ED] was 64 ± 11 mL. endobj Also, if we assume that the slope of the line is related to [1 + αβED], the results show that α (Vmyo−en/ Vmyo) remains fairly constant for different heart sizes and shapes (i.e., different values of β). Because the acquisition of counts is gated with the patient’s ECG, assumes a regular R-R interval and is averaged over several cardiac cycles, arrhythmias (e.g., ectopic beats or atrial fibrillation) will lead to artificially reduced counts in frames later in the cardiac cycle (end-diastole). 5, The myocardium is assumed to be incompressible because the tissue is incompressible and the tissue volume changes caused by

Because of this, each institution should determine its own normal ranges for each modality/method, so that clinicians understand and realise that the normal ranges for LVEF can vary.

The patient population included 29 male and 29 female subjects. There were 7 sets of targeted EDVs Figure 5 shows the QGS LVEFs of the 44 patients with large hearts versus the (LVEF)max calculated by our method. However, for small hearts (EDV < 80 mL), our method produced better results than did QGS method. With automated or semi-automated methods, human variability is limited, but errors can arise from differences in the software algorithms used to detect the LV cavity border.

determination of the position of the edges results in underestimation of the end-systolic volume (ESV), which results in overestimation
