Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Diastolic Circumferential Strain Rate During Isovolumic Relaxation [ Time Frame: Assessed from echo obtained at time of enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Diastolic circumferential strain rate during isovolumic relaxation is a novel measure of diastolic function that measures the rate of relaxation of the left ventricle during the interval of isovolumic relaxation (the period of active relaxation). We would expect that a higher value reflects better relaxation, and better diastolic function.

  • Early Diastolic Mitral Annular Velocity (E-prime) Using Tissue Doppler [ Time Frame: Assessed from echo obtained at time of enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    E-prime is a conventional commonly-used parameter of diastolic function. Higher values of E-prime typically reflect better diastolic function.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Single arm study. Device: Echocardiography system Ultra DCI Model 5000
Each subject will undergo scanning using the investigational echocardiography system (Ultra DCI Model 5000)to measure Diastolic Circumferential Strain Rate during Isovolumic Relaxation (DCSR-IVR) as novel measure of diastolic function.
Device: Echocardiography machine GE Vivid E9
Each subject will undergo echocardiography using a conventional echocardiography machine to evaluate the early diastolic mitral annular velocity (E-prime) using tissue Doppler as a standard measure of diastolic function.
Device: Diastolic function assessment
Each subject will undergo standard echocardiographic measure of the mitral inflow pattern and invasive catheter-derived measure of left ventricular end-diastolic pressure to determine their diastolic function. This evaluation will be used as the gold standard for this study.
