Real-time three-dimensional echocardiography: technological gadget or clinical tool?
The complex anatomy of cardiac structures requires three-dimensional spatial orientation of images for a better understanding of structure and function, thereby improving image interpretation. Real-time three-dimensional echocardiography is a recently developed technique based on the design of an ultrasound transducer with a matrix array that rapidly acquires image data in a pyramidal volume. The simultaneous display of multiple tomographic images allows three-dimensional perspective and the ...Expand abstract
