ABSTRACT
The article focuses on congestive cardiomyopathy and ischemic cardiomyopathy. Echocardiograms were obtained with an Ekoline echocardiograph, and recorded by a Cambridge strip recorder utilizing a 2.25 MHz transducer at 1000 pulses per second, focused at 7.5 centimeters. Patients were examined in both supine and left lateral positions with the transducer at the left sternal border, using an M-mode scanning technique. Cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography is an accurate method of differential diagnosis, but the attending morbidity in high risk patients gives an excellent opportunity to diagnose similar conditions by echocardiography in a safe, accurate and reasonably inexpensive method.
