BACKGROUND The utility of three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) for right ventricular (RV) assessment is uncertain in older children and adults with congenital heart disease (CHD), in whom the right ventricle is often dilated and dysfunction is common. METHODS RV assessments using 3DE were compared with manual tracing and automated border detection (ABD) with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as the reference method. Twenty-eight of 54 consecutive patients (52%; median age, 17 years) with… CONTINUE READING
