Özet

Background: Atrial electromechanical delay (AEMD) calculated from tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) echocardiography can be an alternative to invasive electrophysiologic studies. We investigated whether the AEMD obtained from TDI is prolonged in patients with nonischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM).
