Information

The method of calculating left ventricular ejection fraction (LV EF) consists of dividing Doppler derived stroke volume (SV) in the LV outflow track (LVOT) by LV end-diastolic volume (LVEDV) calculated by Teichholz’s formula.

SV
= π * (
LVOT
2
)2 * VTI1
LVEDV
=
(7 * LVEDD3)
(2.4 + LVEDD)
