What is 3D Echocardiography?
3D echocardiography has been proven to be useful for clarifying complicated cardiac anatomies and hemodynamics. Recently introduced real-time 3D TEE may overcome technical and quality problems and result in widespread use of 3D echocardiography in routine clinical settings.
3D echocardiography is able to provide intuitive recognition of cardiac structures from any spatial point of view and may provide complete information about absolute heart chamber volumes and functions. Although there are still limitations to the currently available 3D ultrasound methods due to its relatively low image quality and low time resolution, this method would be one of the ultimate goals of cardiac imaging. In light of the recent development of real-time 3D transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), this new imaging method may become a clinical standard within a few years .
In general, there are two major definite advantages of 3D imaging over conventional 2D echocardiography as follows:
- Quantification of absolute cardiac chamber volumes, including left ventricle (LV), right ventricle (RV), and left atrial (LA) volumes and their functions.
- Visualization of the 3D structure and dynamic motion images of the heart, especially heart valve structures.
