Study Findings—LV Function

Element NameDefinition
LV diastolic function (Recommended)Indicate the overall assessment of LV diastolic function.
Choose 1 of the following:
• Normal for age
• Abnormal for age
• N/A
Resting LV systolic function: Global wall motion abnormalities: Ejection fraction (EF)/LVEF (Optional)Indicate the calculated ejection fraction (actual value or midpoint of range). Or not applicable.
Method of LVEF calculation (Optional)Indicate the method of LVEF calculation. Choose 1 of the following:
• Visual
• Quantitative
Resting LV systolic function: Global function: Ejection fraction (EF) (Recommended)Indicate the ejection fraction category. Choose 1 of the following:
• Hyperdynamic: greater than 70%
• Normal: 50% to 70% (midpoint 60%)
• Mild dysfunction: 40% to 49% (midpoint 45%)
• Moderate dysfunction: 30% to 39% (midpoint 35%)
• Severe dysfunction: less than 30%
LV wall motion abnormalities—17 segment (Recommended—SPECT, echo, CMR) (Optional—CCTA)Assess regional function in each of the 17 myocardial segments by indicating if it was normal, hypokinetic, akinetic, dyskinetic, or not visualized.
An example of how this information could be collected, along with a diagram of the 17 segments, is included inAppendix E.
LV wall motion abnormalities—10 segment (Optional—LVG)Assess regional function in each of the 10 myocardial segments by indication if it was normal, hypokinetic, akinetic, dyskinetic or not visualized.
An example of how this information could be collected, along with a diagram of the 10 segments, is included inAppendix F.

N/A indicates not applicable.
