Graphic representation of echocardiographic parameters in the assessment of right ventricular dysfunction. Ao, aorta; DTI, Doppler tissue imaging; EF, ejection fraction; ET, ejection time; FAC, fractional area change; IVC, inferior vena cava; IVCT, isovolumic contraction time; IVRT, isovolumic relaxation time; LA, left atrium; LV, left ventricle; LVEDD, left ventricular end‐diastolic diameter; RA, right atrium; RIMP, right ventricular index of myocardial performance; RV, right ventricle; RVEDD, right ventricular end‐diastolic diameter; TAPSE, tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion; TR, tricuspid regurgitation.
