Abstract

The further examination of left ventricular diastolic function (LVDF) is important in terms of early diagnosis, therapy and follow-up of heart failure. Although cardiac catheterization is considered as the most accurate method in the evaluation of diastolic function, since it is invasive, noninvasive methods are preferred.
