From: Performance comparison of ventricular and arterial dP/dtmax for assessing left ventricular systolic function during different experimental loading and contractile conditions

Fig. 5

Concordance on percentage changes in left ventricular (LV), femoral and radial maximal rate of rise in pressure (dP/dtmax) and percentage changes in end-systolic elastance (Ees) during the different experimental stages. Four-quadrant plots (concordance graphs) showing the relationship between percentage changes in LV Ees and LV and arterial dP/dtmax during each experimental condition. Good trending capability was assumed when most of the data lie in the right-upper and the left-lower quadrants. Dashed green line represents the line of equality
