Colour-flow mapping is a useful method for the detection of valvular regurgitation. However, since it may not be accurate enough for reliable quantification in some circumstances, a volumetric approach is preferable. In cases of massive mitral regurgitation (MR) or aortic regurgitation (AR), any measurement may be difficult. Aortic and mitral stenosis are satisfactorily assessed by the volumetric, continuous wave and pulsed wave Doppler methods [18]. Ischaemic mitral valve insufficiency is very common in the ICU.
