Table 1 Measured quantities, their physiological correlates and diagnostic utility

From: Laser-scanning velocimetry: A confocal microscopy method for quantitative measurement of cardiovascular performance in zebrafish embryos and larvae

Physical Measurement Physiological Parameter Diagnostic Relevance
Peak Velocity Peak Velocity ↑ in Aortic Stenosis, ↓ in Heart Failure
Minimum Velocity Minimum Velocity Negative with valvular dysfunction
Peak Acceleration Contractility ↓ in Heart Failure
Peak Deceleration Peripheral Resistance Indicative of vascular tone and development
Velocity Integral Stroke Volume and Cardiac Output ↓ in Heart Failure
