Mean wall thickness improves characterization and prognosis in left ventricular hypertrophy

Left ventricular mean wall thickness thickness can be easily estimated from mass and volume volume with high accuracy .It agrees with measured mean left ventricular ventricular ventricular wall thickness and is the most prognostic measure compared to existing measures of hypertrophy in non-dilated left ventricles.
