What is a 3D Echocardiogram?

Echocardiography (3 D imaging) is performed using ultrasound waves to see live visual images of the heart structure. An ultrasound wand is positioned at varied areas on the chest to show the heart visually on the screen. The pumping action, size, and function, of the four cardiac chambers, can be seen and evaluated.

Digital echocardiography can be helpful in identifying whether pacemaker or intracardiac defibrillator leads contribute to tricuspid regurgitation. This is the surgeon’s view.

Is 3D better than 2D imaging?

The introduction of 3D has improved the accuracy and reproducibility of LV volume and EF measurements.

How long does a 3D heart image take to capture?

20 to 40 minutes is the average time. You may be asked to stay for a short period afterward for monitoring.

The benefits

3D echocardiography provides easy recognition of cardiac structures from any spatial point of view and may give more complete information about absolute heart chamber volumes and functions. This can lead to the most accurate diagnosis and resulting treatment recommendations.
