There was a new, mild hypokinesia involving the inferior wall of the left ventricle from mid to base on the posters images.
Preliminary data support its reliability and validity for neurologically normal adults and the presence of increased stiffness (rigidity) in an adult with hypokinesia associated with Parkinson disease [39-40].
