Abstract

We compared quantitative Doppler echocardiography and cine magnetic resonance imaging for calculation of regurgitant volume and regurgitant fraction in mitral regurgitation. A good correlation was present between the 2 methods with some scatter in patients with severe mitral regurgitation and high regurgitant volumes.
