Abstract

In recent decades, echocardiography has evolved into a useful tool in the assessment of cardiovascular anatomy, physiology, and pathology. Its use has enabled the measurement of structural parameters such as left ventricular mass, which has both diagnostic and prognostic value. Doppler measurements have allowed for accurate hemodynamic assessment that can help to guide therapy. Newer methods have also been used and proposed to evaluate systolic and diastolic function. Here, we review the use of echocardiography in cardiac structural and functional assessment, providing insights into the challenges and limitations of these techniques in dialysis patients.
