Three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography has multiple advantages for the visualization of cardiac anatomy, chamber quantification, and guidance of transcatheter interventions.
In this course, experts in 3D echocardiography address essential topics in a case-based approach with multiple examples. The course begins with history of the technology and moves to the basics of image acquisition and display. Subsequent lectures focus on chamber quantification and valvular heart disease. The use of 3D echocardiography to guide transcatheter interventions is also examined in depth. Finally, a vision for the future of 3D echocardiography, including virtual reality, fusion imaging, and holographic display is presented.
This teaching tool has multiple benefits including the capacity to quickly gain knowledge and improve your understanding of the capabilities of this novel imaging technique, the aptitude to visualize dynamic images in our clinical work, and an understanding of the potential future of 3D echocardiography.
This 3D echocardiography lecture series was created to help instruct and expand your knowledge and confidence of interpretation of this imaging modality. We hope you enjoy this learning experience.
