Table 1 Criteria developed to consistently and repeatably identify AVP on right parasternal long and short axis cineloops of the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) and aortic valve (AoV)

From: Reliability and Identification of Aortic Valve Prolapse in the Horse

A) RIGHT-SIDED PARASTERNAL LONG-AXIS VIEW OF THE LVOT AND AOV B) RIGHT-SIDED PARASTERNAL SHORT-AXIS VIEW OF THE AOV
· Image obtained from RICS4 · Images obtained from the RICS4
· IVS perpendicular to the ultrasound beam · AoV centred in the middle of the image with all three cusps visible
· Walls of the Ao parallel · TV in the near field of the image
· Two AoV cusps visible · PV in the far field of the image
  1. Abbreviations: Ao – aorta; IVS – inter-ventricular septum; PV – pulmonary valve; RICS4 – right 4th intercostal space; TV – tricuspid valve.
