Abstract

Three-dimensional echocardiography has now been shown to have several advantages over 2D echocardiography, particularly for volume measurements, visualization of septal defects, and whole-valve evaluation. Given these data, it is clear that 3D echocardiography is here to stay and soon will become part of routine echocardiographic examinations.
