LVEDP
My cardiologist wants to do an echocardigram to measure my lvedp. Everything I can research says you cannot get an accurate LVEDP from an echocrdiogram. That is my question is can you?

hello
LVEDP can be indirectly measured from echo however you are correct that the most precise means is a direct measurement from cardiac catheterization. What are the symptoms that the study is being done for. Im sure that this is just a preliminary step to avoid an unnecessary invasive procedure.
