Abstract

Although there remain significant limitations in the echocardiographic examination of the left ventricle, there is still a great deal of valuable information that can be obtained from this examination provided that one appropriately and carefully uses the echocardiographic techniques which have been described. With the increasing number of good investigators entering the field, and with the many potential technical and engineering improvements yet to be explored, there is every reason to believe that some of these limitations will be eliminated and that echocardiography will become one of the best methods available for judging left ventricular performance.
