Echocardiography affords the physician a detailed assessment of mitral valve integrity unequalled by any other non-invasive test. Mitral valve prolapse may easily be overdiagnosed by echocardiography, however together with auscultation, ultrasound remains the best way to evaluate this common condition.
Echocardiography is also invaluable in the evaluation of endocarditis and prosthetic mitral valves.
