AIMS A novel real-time three-dimensional echocardiography (RT3DE) analysis tool specifically designed for evaluation of the left atrium enables comprehensive evaluation of left atrial (LA) size, global, and regional function using a dynamic 16-segment model. The aim of this study was the initial validation of this method using computed tomography (CT) as the method of reference. METHODS AND RESULTS The study population consisted of 34 prospectively enrolled patients with clinical indication… CONTINUE READING
