Detection of Congenital Heart Disease using B mode ultrasound images in apical 4CV

In 2D UltraSound image what are the parameters used by radiologist/doctors to determine congenital heart disease (CHD) in the apical four chamber view?

I am an engineer/researcher developing code for finding feature parameters of irregular shaped 2d closed curves . For example a square has 4 corners and one width/height , circle infinite corners/radius, oval infinite corners/ 2 lengths major and minor. So I was wondering if we could have various measure for real life curves as found in US cardiac images such as width of the ventricles.Any help would be deeply appreciated.

Thanks,

Sushma

Ventricular septal defects can be observed on US so you may look at detection and measurement of holes.

Also, they looked at width of LV/RV in the paper below which may be worth looking at.
