Right Ventricular Inflow

Fig. 8. Right ventricular inflow view. From this view, we can see a longitudinal view of the right ventricle (RV) and right atrium (RA). The RA is to the right and bottom (posterior) and the RV is above (anterior) and left. This view allows visualization of the tricuspid valve, as well as assessment of tricuspid regurgitation and measurement of tricuspid regurgitant velocity. (Please see companion DVD for corresponding video.)
