In an era of rapidly expanding and evolving 3-dimensional echocardiographic (3DE) technology, 1 of the issues facing the 3DE quantification of chamber volumes and function is that different software vendors use different methodologies and algorithms. The aim of this study was to evaluate the comparability and reproducibility of 3DE direct volumetric and speckle-tracking methods for left ventricular (LV) and left atrial (LA) chamber quantification. A total of 120 subjects (mean age 53 ± 17 years… CONTINUE READING
