Abstract

With advancements of high frequency transducer, transthoracic Doppler echocardiography (TTE) is emerging as a promising method for evaluating coronary artery. In addition to visualizing the images for detection of stenosis of proximal and distal coronary artery and various kinds of coronary artery anomaly, functional assessment through measurement of coronary flow reserve using TTE have become a valuable and additive tool for coronary angiography defining only the epicardial coronary arteries. Further efforts for development of new techniques including real time 3D echocardiography in the anatomic and functional assessment of coronary artery disease should be undertaken.
