Definition of ventriculography in US English:



  • Radiography of the ventricles of the brain with the cerebral fluid replaced by air (pneumoencephalography) or radiopaque material or labeled with a radionuclide.

    • ‘Left ventricular systolic dysfunction was documented by either two-dimensional echocardiography or radionuclide ventriculography.’
    • ‘All patients underwent contrast left ventriculography, coronary arteriography, and electrophysiologic study, as clinically indicated.’
    • ‘A left ventriculography was performed to assess the left ventricular ejection fraction and the degree of mitral regurgitation.’
    • ‘Then they were taken to the catheterization laboratory to undergo left ventriculography and coronary arteriography.’
    • ‘Radionuclide ventriculography also may be used to assess left ventricular and right ventricular ejection fractions.’
