BSA-adjusted z-scores for left-sided pulse wave Doppler and tissue Doppler imaging routinely used in a clinical setting.

As Z scores describe the normal limit of a healthy population, other studies are needed to further define the threshold above which health becomes a disease by integrating other important factors such as ventricular morphology, loading condition, and HR.

Note: this is a work-in-progress; there are 13 PW and 14 TD measures... these are the most common. Others will get rolled out as time allows.

Note: the study population had the following characteristics:
  • BSA range: (0.43 - 2.2)
  • age range: (1.3 - 18y)

Data entered for patients outside of these limits should be used with caution.
