The ejection fraction is the determination of the pump function showing how much blood is ejected by every beat towards the aorta, at the same time we can measure the relaxation and elasticity named as diastolic function. On the other hand we can assess the heart valves their narrowing (stenosis) or their insufficiency (regurgitation). We can see the pericardium and its thickening.
