A clinically reliable method for the quantitative assessment of both aortic (AR) and mitral regurgitation was developed. The combination of the semi-automated cardiac flow measurement (ACM) and the flow convergence method were employed in 36 patients with either AR or MR. In AR patients, forward stroke volume by 3D(x) and ACM showed a good correlation. In MR, patients, stroke volume by 3D (x) correlated well with ACM+flow convergence.
