M-Mode Echocardiography M-mode imaging provides a one-dimensional view (depth) in a localized region of the heart/chambers (Figure 3-7). M-mode displays signals of tissues at known depths (Y axis) across time (X axis). M-mode provides higher resolution of heart walls and chamber interfaces so quantitative measures may be more accurately taken. Many functional indices are acquired with M-mode, 46 Diagnostic Methods Figure 3-5. Short-axis views obtained from the right parasternal location. ) such as the percent of fractional shortening, E-point septal separation (estimates of contractility), and aorta–to–left atrial ratio (measure of left atrial size).

Many disorders that once required catheterization for diagnosis may now be reliably evaluated with noninvasive echocardiography. Today, cardiac catheterization is primarily reserved for those patients requiring interventional procedures, such as balloon valvuloplasty, pacemaker implantation, or coil embolization of an unwanted vessel. Special Tests Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are noninvasive techniques that may provide additional information regarding cardiovascular disorders.
