Artificial intelligence (AI) has influenced every field of cardiovascular imaging in all phases from acquisition to reporting. Compared with computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, there is an issue of high observer variation in the interpretation of echocardiograms. Therefore, AI can help minimize the observer variation and provide accurate diagnosis in the field of echocardiography. In this review, we summarize the necessity for automated diagnosis in the echocardiographic field, and discuss the results of AI application to echocardiography and future perspectives...

BACKGROUND: Anabolic androgens have been reported to be associated with cardiovascular complications. One study revealed that increase in vascular stiffness in bodybuilders is associated with anabolic androgens and improvement in vascular function may occur following anabolic androgens discontinuation. The aim of this study was to investigate any possible relation between aortic elastic properties and anabolic androgens. METHODS: Study population was divided into 3 groups: Group-1 [n = 35] consisted of bodybuilders who denied any current or previous use of anabolic androgens...

BACKGROUND: End-stage renal disease is considered to influence coronary microcirculation and left ventricular (LV) diastolic function. We investigated whether differences exist in LV diastolic function indices and coronary flow reserve (CFR) between patients on hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD). METHODS: A complete transthoracic echocardiographic study was performed on 21 HD and 22 PD patients and LV diastolic function was evaluated. CFR was estimated using transthoracic Doppler echocardiography on the left anterior descending artery, during high-dose dypiridamole infusion...

BACKGROUND: Tissue-tracking mitral annular displacement (TMAD) by speckle-tracking echocardiography provides rapid and simple assessment of left ventricular (LV) longitudinal deformation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the value of TMAD for the assessment of LV longitudinal deformation in patients with severe AS and preserved LV ejection fraction (LVEF). METHODS: We studied 44 patients with severe AS preserved and LVEF in whom TMAD was assessed. Using TMAD analysis software, the base-to-apex displacement of automatically defined mid-point of mitral annular line in four-chamber view was quickly assessed, and the percentage of its displacement to LV length at end-diastole (%TMAD) was calculated...

Under the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the Japanese Society of Echocardiography (JSE) has been working to protect medical staff involved in echocardiographic examinations and to prevent secondary infections caused by the examinations since mid-March 2020. This review aims to describe the footprint of the JSE's responses, focusing on the 3 months in which the initial outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic occurred in Japan. We summarized the six parts as follows: (1) the initial actions for COVID-19 of JSE, (2) JSE's actions for infection control-associated echocardiographic examinations, (3) statements from the American Society of Echocardiography during the COVID-19 pandemic and their Japanese translation by JSE, (4) making videos for explaining the practice of echocardiography during the COVID-19 pandemic, (5) attempts with the JSE members' opinions by the communication platform and surveys, and (6) efforts of final statement during the initial spread of COVID-19...

Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is a complex and still poorly recognized heart disease with a wide spectrum of possible clinical presentations. Despite its reversibility, it is associated with serious adverse in-hospital events and high complication rates during follow-up. Multimodality imaging is helpful for establishing the diagnosis, guiding therapy, and stratifying prognosis of TTS patients in both the acute and post-acute phase. Echocardiography plays a key role, particularly in the acute care setting, allowing for the assessment of left ventricular (LV) systolic and diastolic function and the identification of the typical apical-midventricular ballooning pattern, as well as the circumferential pattern of wall motion abnormalities...

BACKGROUND: Although anthracycline-related cardiomyopathy is a life-threatening complication during intensive treatment for hematological malignancies, clinical features and outcomes of this type of cardiomyopathy have been unclear because of limited reports in the literature. METHODS: We analyzed three cases of anthracycline-related cardiomyopathy among 996 patients with either acute myelogenous leukemia (285), acute lymphoblastic leukemia (37), or malignant lymphoma (674) at our hospital during the period from 2006 to 2016...

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most frequent cardiac disease with genetic substrate, affecting about 0.2-0.5% of the population. While most of the patients with HCM have a relatively good prognosis, some are at increased risk of adverse events. Identifying such patients at risk is important for optimal treatment and follow-up. While clinical and electrocardiographic information plays an important role, echocardiography remains the cornerstone in assessing patients with HCM. In this review, we discuss the role of echocardiography in diagnosing HCM, the key features that differentiate HCM from other diseases and the use of echocardiography for risk stratification in this setting (risk of sudden cardiac death, heart failure, atrial fibrillation and stroke)...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether impaired resting global longitudinal strain (GLS) in elderly patients with preserved left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF) is associated with raised post-exercise LV filling pressure estimated by the ratio of early diastolic transmitral flow velocity to annulus velocity (E/e'). METHODS: Seventy elderly patients (age = 74 ± 6 years, male 40 patients) who underwent treadmill stress echocardiography were studied...
