Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a progressive muscle-wasting disease that causes respiratory or cardiac failure and results in death at about 20 years of age. An animal model of DMD, the mdx mouse, is commonly used to estimate dystrophic pathology. The pathological features of limb muscles are relatively mild, however the diaphragm is severely affected(More)
Visualization of Real-Time 3D Echocardiography (RT3DE) is currently limited by the bi-dimensional nature of conventional monitors. The objective of this study is to implement and evaluate an optimized image-processing algorithm to generate multi-view auto-stereoscopic images. Custom-made software rendered test images (n=5) on a 9-view auto-stereoscopic 3D(More)
Real-Time 3D Echocardiography is currently limited by factors including accessibility of analysis software to quickly and accurately determine ventricular volumes for assessment of myocardial function. The goal of this study was to examine the capabilities of a 3D system to acquire full 4D echocardiographic datasets and evaluate the ability to obtain both(More)
