Vector flow mapping and energy loss images in midesophageal long-axis view. Brightness indicates energy loss. A, Vector flow mapping image before BTS. A’, Energy loss image before BTS. B, Vector flow mapping image after BTS. B′, Energy loss image after BTS. The large bright area indicates increased energy loss compared to Fig. A’ due to the hyperdynamic state. C, Vector flow mapping image before BCPS. Volume loads decrease compared to Fig. B due to the worsened pulmonary blood flow. C′, Energy loss image before BCPS. D, Vector flow mapping image after BCPS. D’, Energy loss image after BCPS. The small bright area indicates decreased energy loss compared to Fig. C′ due to the hypodynamic state
