Abstract

To evaluate whether left ventricular (LV) mass assessed by a new real-time, 3-dimensional echocardiographic (RT-3DE) system corresponds to cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with LV hypertrophy, RT-3DE and 2-dimensional echocardiography (2DE) were performed to calculate LV mass in 21 patients (mean age 54 +/- 15 years) who underwent MRI for the evaluation of LV hypertrophy. In 20 of 21 patients, adequate 3-dimensional data for LV mass analysis were obtained, and regression analysis showed that LV mass by RT-3DE correlated with that determined by MRI (r = 0.95, y = 28.9 + 0.85x) better than with that determined by 2DE (r = 0.70, y = 43.6 + 0.81x). RT-3DE allows the accurate measurement of LV mass in patients with hypertrophied hearts.
