Abstract

Digital format is rapidly emerging as a preferred method for displaying and retrieving echocardiographic studies. The qualitative diagnostic accuracy of Moving Pictures Experts Group (MPEG-1) compressed digital echocardiographic studies has been previously reported. The goals of the present study were to compare quantitative measurements derived from MPEG-1 recordings with the super-VHS (sVHS) videotape clinical standard. Six reviewers performed blinded measurements from still-flame images selected from 20 echocardiographic studies that were simultaneously acquired in sVHS and MPEG-1 formats. Measurements were obtainable in 1401 (95%) of 1486 MPEG-1 variables compared with 1356 (91%) of 1486 sVHS variables (P < .001). Excellent agreement existed between MPEG-1 and sVHS 2-dimensional linear measurements (r = 0.97; MPEG-1 = 0.95[sVHS] + 1.1 mm; P < .001; Δ= 9% ± 10%), 2-dimensional area measurements (r = 0.89), color jet areas (r = 0.87, p < .001), and Doppler velocities (r = 0.92, p < .001). Interobserver variability was similar for both sVHS and MPEG-1 readings. Our results indicate that quantitative off-line measurements from MPEG-1 digitized echocardiographic studies are feasible and comparable to those obtained from sVHS.
