Echocardiography of the right side of the heart

Cardiol Clin. 1992 Feb;10(1):41-57.


Echocardiography has not only revealed the morphologic aspects of the right-sided cardiac structure but has, through the use of pulsed and color Doppler imaging, provided a whole new level of certainty in the diagnosis of cardiac disease. The structure and function of the right-sided chambers are now far better appreciated since this technique has become more widely used for early clinical diagnosis of right-sided cardiac disease.
