colour flow doppler
Colour Flow Doppler
  • 1.Flow distribution (jet size)
  • 2.Vena contracta
  • 3.PISA
1 flow distribution
1.Flow distribution
  • How far the regurgitant jet extends into the LA.
  • Trace area of the jet and LA
    • Jet area (cm)2
      • Severe MR: >10
    • Jet area / LA (%)
      • Severe MR: >40
colour flow doppler1
Colour Flow Doppler
  • Jet position in relation to the mitral leaflets.
    • Evidence of leaflet perforation.
    • Multiple or single jets
colour doppler
The direction of the regurgitant jet

Centrally

anteriorly

posteriorly directed.

Away from abnormal leaflet.

Colour doppler
consider image quality
Consider Image quality
  • Poor image quality may underestimate severity
consider jet direction
Consider –Jet direction

Direction of the Jet (entrainment effect)

  • Central jet overestimated
  • Eccentric jet underestimated
2 vena contracta width
2.Vena Contracta width
  • Narrowest region at the mitral valve level
  • 2 planes
  • Nyquist 50-60 cm/s
  • Zoom to optimise visualisation
  • Colour sector as narrow as possible
  • Maximal lateral and temporal resolution
    • Mild MR :
    • VC <0.3cm
    • Severe MR :

VC >0.7cm

consideration
Consideration
  • VC width is inaccurate with multiple jets
consideration1
Consideration
  • VC should not be measured in Apical 2Ch view
    • Parallel to the mitral orifice.
    • Overestimation.
3 proximal isovelocity surface area pisa
3.Proximal Isovelocity surface area (PISA)
  • Hemishells
  • Flow convergence area
  • Increases with severity of regurgitation
calculating pisa
Calculating (PISA)
  • Apical 4Ch view
  • Narrow sector width
  • Minimise depth
  • Zoom
  • Adjust Colour Doppler alaising velocity (20-40 cm/s)
slide22
PISA
  • Measure the radius of the hemisphere. (red/blue interface)
    • PISA radius =2πr2 (cm2)
      • Mild MR: <0.4
      • Severe MR:>1.0
