The investigation of aortic stenosis includes:
- ECG - left ventricular hypertrophy and strain
- chest radiography:
- may show post-stenotic dilatation of the ascending aorta
- there may be calcification of the aortic valve
- doppler and echocardiography - diagnostic of aortic stenosis
- cardiac catheterization and angiography - necessary only to exclude co-existing coronary artery disease.
