Non-Invasive Assessment of LV Systolic Function and Diastolic Filling at Rest and During Exercise in Coronary Heart Disease
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (volume 21)
In the assessment of the main determinants of cardiac function the study of the systolic phase and diastolic filling appear to be of paramount importance[1–3].
