About this book

Introduction

Three-dimensional (3D) transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a powerful visual tool  which the novice or experienced echocardiographer, cardiologist, or cardiac surgeon can use to achieve a better understanding and assessment of normal and pathological cardiac function and anatomy. A complement to traditional 2D imaging, 3D TEE enables visualization of any cardiac structure from multiple perspectives.  For the echocardiographer, it demands a different set of skills for image acquisition and manipulation. 

Real-Time Three-Dimensional Transesophageal Echocardiography is a practical illustrated step-by-step guide to the latest in 3D technology and image acquisition.  Each chapter systematically focuses on different cardiac structures with practical tips to image acquisition.
