# Does an echocardiogram show the ejection fraction?

Yes. Yes, a good quality echocardiogram can show the ejection fraction.
Yes. Ejection fraction is one of the most frequent calculated numbers based on pictures taken during an echocardiogram.

## Ejection fraction on Echocardiogram 45-50% but onnk CMRI 67%. Which is most accurate? Why discrepancy?

Accuracy dependent. The acuracy of an echo dependent on operator & time alloted&the equip. Having said that, NL EF of echo is >55%. So if looks NL, will be called 55%. Thus, # not written in stone, consensus opinion. No Measurement is perfect because of technical reasons. Best measure `considered' Nuclear. Does require radioactive nuclide injected, NL if EF >50%. Not perfect measure either. Experienced reader helpful. Read more...

## My echocardiogram report says LVEF "reasonable to good" what does this mean Ejection fraction wise? 30% 40% 50% 60%?

Echocardiogram. "reasonable to good" is that reader's usage and you'd have to ask that reader to be sure what was meant. In my view 50-55% is reasonable to good. Read more...

## During routine echocardiogram, is the ejection fraction usually calculated using the m-mode estimate, or the 2d volume (tracing the lv) measurement?

Either. Both methods are used. However, it is generally accepted that tracing the endocardial borders of the left ventricle at end systole and end diastole in two separate planes gives the best estimate of ejection fraction. When using only the m-mode tracing, there are many assumptions built into the estimate of ejection fraction that can challenge accuracy. Read more...

## What does having a left ventricular ejection fraction of 75% on echocardiogram mean?

Normal. Ef >65% is generally reported as normal. Read more...

## Echocardiogram 2.5 years ago normal ejection fraction 60-65%. Now normal but ejection fraction 55% is this a bad sign or just variable? Just ectopics

"Normal" hard to jud. Basis for designating an ejection frac (EF) as "normal" isn't just the pictures that are seen, but also knowledge of your medical condition- symptoms & signs. Any echocardiogram has variability - a calculated EF of 55% means the EF can range from 50%-60% (+/-5%). Similarly, 2.5 yrs ago, EF was probably in the range of 57%-67%. There's considerable overlap, so it's hard to say if anything changed. Read more...

## Echocardiogram: How can I have a 55-60% ejection fraction with a 37 mL stroke volume?

Diastolic heart fail. In constrictive heart diseases (like constrictive cardiomyopathy, pericarditis, diastolic dysfunction, & hypertensive heart diseases), the heart fails to relax in diastole to bring enough blood to the left ventricle. In that situation, you may be only getting about 70 mL in the LV, so an ejection fraction of 55-60% (which is "normal") only puts out about 37 mL (as opposed to 140 mL in, 70 mL out). Read more...

## Hi. Can you please tell me the meaning of - Echocardiogram only minor anterior basal hypokinesia - good lv with ejection fraction 76%, ECG abnormal.?

Echo. You need to discuss with your doctor. This probably is no big deal, but without more information and clarity an answer from out here wouldn't mean much. . Read more...
