Table 4 Distribution of patients according to LVEF

From: Global longitudinal strain is a more reproducible measure of left ventricular function than ejection fraction regardless of echocardiographic training

LVEF 35–40% 41–54% > 55%
Trainee echocardiographer 11 (23.4) 18 (38.3) 18 (38.3)
Expert echocardiographer 8 (17.0) 15 (31.9) 24 (51.1)
  1. Categorical data are presented in numbers (%). LVEF = left ventricular ejection fraction
