Real-time volumetric echocardiography: the technology and the possibilities.
The heart is a dynamic organ with complexities in its shape. As such, it places special demands on three-dimensional techniques for reconstruction. Real-time volumetric echocardiography, which is based on phased array and parallel processing principles to enhance line density within a scan volume, provides rapid image acquisition. We introduce the principle, potential clinical importance, current limitations, and future of volumetric imaging methods.
