Italian term or phrase: LV massa(C)dI
This is from an echocardiogram report ... it's an "Esame ecocardiografico M-Mode, Bidimensionale e Color Doppler" scan. After all the echocardiogram acronyms I've had to figure out, I'm still finding new ones.

The heading of the section is "Misure e Calcoli MMode/2D" and this result reads "LV massa(C)dI = 175 grammi/m2"

LV has to be Left Ventricle (there are many English acronyms in this report) but then they left "massa" in Italian. I can't figure out the (C). The little 'd' has to be 'diastolic' ... we also have another reading with an 's' (LV massa(C)sI) ... and then there is the capital letter "I" that I also can't figure out.

There is also one entry that just says LV massa (C)d: 309.5 grammi without the /m2. Maybe the "I" stands for Index?

Please help me with this (C) and "I" so I can understand what the whole entry means.

Thanks again.
