Figure 1 Left atrial physiology imaging using different methods. The figure displays pulmonary venous (PV) velocity, left atrial (LA) strain (epsilon), LA strain rate (SR), LA volume, left atrial pressure (LAP), and mitral spectral and tissue Doppler. Displayed are two cardiac cycles and the color-coded imaging of reservoir, conduit, and booster pump functions in red, blue, and yellow lines are shown within the first cardiac cycle, respectively.
