Abstract

Left ventricular ejection fraction and values proportional to mitral and aortic flow were measured throughout the cardiac cycle by videodensitometric analysis of left ventricular roentgen angiograms. The technique was used simultaneously with measurement of the dimensions of the ventricle to provide absolute values for comparison. Sensitivity of the technique was tested by the ability to detect the atrial contribution to mitral flow and left ventricular chamber volume. Roentgen videodensitometry has the advantages that much information can be extracted from videoangiograms in real-time (on-line, if need be), it requires relatively low concentration of contrast medium, and it is self-calibrating.
