    ABSTRACT: Two-dimensional echocardiography provides valuable information for the assessment of left ventricular function. Traditionally, evaluation has focused on determination of systolic performance. However, recent investigations indicate diastolic dysfunction may also contribute to symptoms of congestive heart failure in many patients despite normal systolic function. Pulsed Doppler echocardiography complements two-dimensional imaging for assessment of left ventricular filling properties that are often altered in the setting of diastolic dysfunction. The concept of diastolic function and recognition of abnormal filling patterns detected by pulsed Doppler echocardiography are reviewed.
