Equations for Estimating Left Atrial Volume Using Features of P Wave in Lead II

Purpose:

To estimate a patient's left atrial volume using the P wave from lead II in the equations of Birkbeck et al.

Specialty:

Cardiovascular Diseases, Nuclear Cardiology

Objective:

imaging studies

ICD-10:

I00-I99

Description:

Birkbeck et al developed equations for estimating left atrial volume determined by 2-dimensional echocardiography. Features of the P wave in lead II correlated with left atrial volume. The authors are from the University of Kansas.
