A comparison was made between the M-mode echocardiography and Simpson EF radionuclide ventriculography, and the overestimation rate (10%) was found to be higher in the M-mode method as compared to the other method.
(28) performed conventional, strain, and tissue Doppler echocardiography in 23 FMF patients and 22 healthy controls and did not observe any significant differences between the FMF patients and healthy controls in terms of two-dimensional and M-mode echocardiography, nor in conventional Doppler and tissue Doppler velocities.
Posterior wall systolic and diastolic velocities measured by M-mode echocardiography improved in the patients with mitral stenosis after open mitral commissurotomy (19).

For overall and large assessment of the heart two-dimensional echocardiographic method or B-mode and to accurately measure cavity and distance between them, the M-mode echocardiography was used.
Stricter echocardiographic criteria have been recommended including: a left ventricular ejection fraction of less than 45% t, fractional shortening of less than 30% on an M-mode echocardiography scan, or both, and a left ventricular end-diastolic dimension of more than 2.7 cm per square meter of body-surface area (10).
M-mode echocardiography of the left ventricle and the aortic root was performed.
The study involved a representative population-based sample of 863 middle-aged Finnish men who underwent baseline assessment of left atrial diameter and left ventricular mass via M-mode echocardiography. During an average 13-year follow-up, 69 deaths due to cardiovascular disease occurred.
NEW YORK -- M-mode echocardiography, pulsed Doppler, and fetal magnetocardiography have the potential to revolutionize diagnosis of fetal cardiac arrhythmias, but like many advances in diagnostic technology they will likely leave clinicians wondering what to do about what they discover.
Measurement of Tricuspid Annular Plane Systolic Excursion (TAPSE) by M-mode Echocardiography
With the help of M-mode echocardiography, other quantitative data were obtained as the FS and the LA/AO ratio that explain in a more direct manner the relationship between the degree of valvular regurgitation and the clinical stage of the disease.
