(a) Measurements of left ventricular chamber size and wall thickness dimensions in the parasternal long-axis view during diastole; (b) measurement of the left ventricular chamber size dimension in the parasternal long-axis view during systole. The left ventricular areas are measured at the midpapillary level of the left parasternal short-axis view during both diastole and systole; (c) left ventricular end-diastolic area; (d) left ventricular end-systolic area. LVIDd: left ventricular internal diameter diastole; LVPWd: left ventricular posterior wall diastole; IVSd: interventricular septum diastole; EDV: end-diastolic volume; EF: ejection fraction; LVIDs: left ventricular internal diameter systole; LVEDA: left ventricular end-diastolic area; LVFAC: left ventricular fractional area of change; LVESA: left ventricular end-systolic area.
