Impact of the number of image planes of real-time three-dimensional echocardiography on the accuracy of left atrial and ventricular volume measurements.


Real-time three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography (RT-3DE) has emerged as a new technique in measuring left atrial and ventricular volume. However, the impact of cutting planes of RT-3DE on the accuracy of volume measurement in patients with a normal or enlarged heart is still unknown. We enrolled 30 normal subjects (control group) and 30 patients with… (More)
