Real-time, three-dimensional echocardiography: feasibility and initial use

Echocardiography. 1991 Jan;8(1):119-25. doi: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.1991.tb01409.x.


The purpose of this article is to review new approaches to three-dimensional acquisition and presentation of echocardiographic data. New three-dimensional phased-array devices hold great promise for the development and application of new descriptors for left ventricular performance, myocardial perfusion, and other important indices of cardiac function.
