Echocardiography is the key examination in the diagnosis and quantification of AR severity, using colour Doppler (mainly vena contracta) and pulsed-wave Doppler (diastolic flow reversal in the descending aorta).16,49 Quantitative Doppler echocardiography, using the analysis of proximal isovelocity surface area, is less sensitive to loading conditions, but is less well established than in MR and not used routinely at this time.50 The criteria for defining severe AR are described in Table 5.
