A 25-year-old member asked:
is there one best test to diagnose mitral regurgitation?

Yes: A murmur (detected with a stethoscope) is characteristic and is the usual way one suspects it. An echocardiogram is the gold standard. Mild mitral regurgitation will not produce a murmur and an echo will confirm that it is truly insignificant.
