I just wanted to let you know that even though I'm looking quite old, I'm still a millenial.
So I just had a "New Year, New Me" moment and my resolution is to become a new and improved version of myself in a couple of weeks.
Don't worry, my wisdom won't change. You're still going to find the same useful information here. Stay tuned!
Regurgitant Flow Rate
to get a Regurgitant Flow Rate in Tricuspid Regurgitation.
Step 1: Obtain
a CFD of the MR Jet with a good PISA formation under
zoomed view. The midesophageal view
with a good quality, largest PISA formation should
2: Measure the Diameter of the PISA radius.
The radius is from the center of the PISA formation,
typically from the center of the valve, to the first
aliasing velocity. If the PISA is small, try
slightly decreasing the aliasing velocity (VA) which
will increase the size of the PISA formation.
3: Obtain the angle of the PISA formation.
The angle is typically 180 degrees.
