Echo-dynamography (EDG) is a method for visualizing left ventricular (LV) blood flow based on cardiac Doppler measurement in which blood flow component perpendicular to the ultrasonic beam is deduced by applying fluid dynamics theories to two-dimensional (2D) distribution of blood flow component along the ultrasonic beam. EDG has been validated by numerical simulation and particle image velocimetry of model circulation. However, these validations were too simple to reproduce unstable and asymmetrical flow in a beating heart. In the present study, EDG is compared with three-directional (3D) blood flow distribution on the same plane obtained with phase contrast magnetic resonance angiography (PCMRA) for clinical validation. Moreover, the location and vorticity of the vortex flow in LV are measured quantitatively and the relation to echocardiographic parameters of systolic and diastolic functions is discussed.
