The data are visualized in real-time scanning, beat after beat, while performing the examination as in conventional 2D scanning. Real-time 3D echocardiography imaging has no limitation imposed by rhythm disturbances or respiratory motion, but the temporal and spatial resolution is poorer than 2D imaging. Real-time 3D narrow volume Beat-by-beat view with a thicker image plane (slice) than for normal 2D imaging. The thick slice can be rotated. Real-time 3D zoomed A full-volume image of an enlarged area of interest.
The volume-rendered 3D echocardiographic dataset can be electronically segmented and sectioned, cropped, and rotated to provide complex spatial relationships in a 3D display. 5). 2 Surface rendering Structures or organs are shown to the observer as either a solid or a wireframe (cage) 3D object. It is obtained by manually tracing or using semiautomatic border detection algorithms to trace the endocardium in cross-sectional images generated from the 3D dataset. These contours are combined to generate a 3D shape.
Displacement imaging lacks validation for clinical use and is not recommended routinely. Strain and SR from TDI are neither widely used in routine clinical practice. Clinical assessment of strain is rather obtained from STE since it can be calculated offline with semiautomatic software from a routine echocardiographic exam and has fewer limitations. 2 Speckle tracking echocardiography STE calculates strain from tracking speckles in grayscale B-mode images. The speckles are created as artifacts from constructive and destructive interference of ultrasound backscattered from structures smaller than the ultrasound wavelength.
