Abstract

In the past, routine clinical use of three-dimensional echocardiography has been hindered by the prolonged and tedious nature of data acquisition. Image processing is time consuming and requires dedicated manpower to generate three-dimensional reconstructions of the heart. The recent introduction of real-time three-dimensional echocardiographic imaging techniques has revolutionized echocardiography, as images are obtained in just one beat.
