Lopez et al., Circ Cardiovasc Imaging 2017
This is the data from the Pediatric Heart Network 'Echo Z-Score Project', a multi-year multi-institutional project, ultimately evaluating over 3200 patients ≤ 18 years.
BSA raised to a specified power is a good parameter for cardiovascular allometric scaling, and none of the Z score models for the measurements in this study were affected by age, sex, race, or ethnicity.
Note: the study population had the following characteristics:
- age range: (0 - 18y)
Data entered for patients outside of these limits should be used with caution.
