How To Read HCM Test Results?
- Hello there,
Just wondering if anyone here would know how to read/interprete HCM test results?
My cat was tested negative (she was tested as a precaution before breeding, not because she was showing symptoms) but I am just curious what's a 'good' score and what's 'oops, getting close there!'.
This is what the paper says (echocardiogram by specialist):
IVSd 4.1mm 2.5 (2D)
LVWd 2.7 3.0 (2D)
LA 7.9 12.6 (2D)
Thank you in advance:)
The main result is the thickness of the left side of the heart .That
The key morphologic feature of HCM is a concentrically hypertrophied
non-dilated left ventricle (LV) where diastolic interventricular septal or free
wall thickness is 6 mm or greater.
This would be the LVWd reading I assume? They use different initials on the
scans I have. They usually take the thickest value.
