Echocardiography is a useful tool in individuals suspected of ARVC/D. Dilatation of the RV and, in particular, of RVOT are common, with an RVOT diameter greater than 30 mm being a sensitive and reasonably specific marker for the disease. Moreover, RV dysfunction, both global and regional, is frequently noted. Quantitative cut points for diseased versus normal conditions [26,27] need to be established in order to help diagnose borderline cases or family members who may have subclinical forms of the disease. Additionally, studies defining the echocardio-graphic natural history of the disease need to be performed to better aid clinicians in the diagnosis and management of this disease.
