Figure 1: Transthoracic echocardiographic views for measurement of epicardial adipose tissue. a) Parasternal long axis view: measurement is done over the right ventricular free wall taking aortic annulus as reference. Vertical length between the right ventricular free wall and parietal pericardium is measured. b) Parasternal short axis view at mid-ventricular level: measurement is done perpendicular to right ventricular free wall taking interventricular septum (IVS) as reference, usually 2cm away from IVS
