Volume-rendered, three-dimensional echocardiographic determination of the size, shape, and position of atrial septal defects: validation in an in vitro model.

Abstract

Accurate evaluation of atrial septal defect (ASD) size and shape is very important for the selection of patients for transcatheter occlusion. The ability of volume-rendered, three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) in displaying ASDs in a dynamic mode has been demonstrated; however, its accuracy in sizing ASDs is unknown. To assess this, we performed 3DE of… (More)
