Innovations in Transthoracic Echocardiography Could Allow for Acquisition of 2D Images Through the Deconstruction of 3D Data Sets

A research study being presented at the American Society of Echocardiography’s (ASE) 33rd Annual Scientific Sessions, June 10-13, 2022, in Seattle, Wash., explores the benefits of conducting three-dimensional echocardiograms (3DE) and how the approach could eventually replace the standard practice of conventional two-dimensional echocardiography (2DE).

In the study, nearly 40 patients underwent a series of standard 2DE heart imaging. The same heart images were then extracted using 3DE data sets from the same patients. Comparing the pair of images, 3DE-derived measurements were able to be captured much faster than those obtained from conventional 2DE images and were potentially more accurate. Read more here.
