Table 2 Types of pathological Doppler diastolic patterns

From: Tissue Doppler Imaging can be useful to distinguish pathological from physiological left ventricular hypertrophy: a study in master athletes and mild hypertensive subjects

Parameters Abnormal relaxation Pseudonormal Restrictive
Peak E (cm/sec) E>A
Peak A (cm/sec) A<E
E/A ratio <1 >1 - <1,5 >1,5-2
DT (msec) >220 normal <160
IVRT (msec) >100 normal <70
