Traveler Sonography Series: Echocardiography exam showing Takotsubu Syndrome Cardiomyopathy


Takotsubu Cardiomyopathy

I am still in Honolulu, HI completing a travel assignment as an Echocardiographer/Cardiac Sonographer.  Today, I had a case study involving Takotsubu Syndrome in a patient.  It is very interesting to see a patient go from 25% EF to 65% EF.  Take a listen to the video, link provided above.  If any of you other sonographers – Echo Techs-  have any additional comments about your experience with this syndrome, please feel free to share.

I will be posting video of the findings within a few days. 

Thanks to the Academy of Ultrasound.
