Project: Use of Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI) and 2D Speckle Tracking (ST) to evaluate left ventricular function in horses
- project duration
- 01-OCT-08 – 30-SEP-12
- Uding TDI and ST, left ventricular function in healthy horses is quantified and the accuracy of the measurements analyzed. Subsequently, the effect of a pharmacological stimulation or depression of ventricular function, a ventricular premature beat and the presence of mitral regurgitation on the TDI and ST parameters is studied.
