OBJECTIVES We tested a newly developed 4-dimensional (4D) right ventricular (RV) analysis method for computing RV volumes for both 3-dimensional (3D) ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance (MR) images. BACKGROUND Asymmetry and the anatomical complexity of the RV make accurate determination of RV shape and volume difficult. METHODS Thirty patients, 14 with grossly normal cardiac anatomy and 16 with major congenital heart disease, were studied at the same visit with both 3D echocardiography… CONTINUE READING
