3D echocardiography (3DE) has become a dynamic visual tool, producing either gray-scale or Doppler color images, instantly available. It has rapidly become the technology of choice for the imaging of cardiovascular disease.
Real-Time 3D Echocardiography for Congenital Heart Disease: From Fetus to Adult is the first book to cover the applications of this technology throughout the human lifespan. Dr. Ge has assembled a stellar team of authors who have contributed not only clear and concise descriptive text, but also illustrations of the highest quality.
The ability to measure a heart’s size, volume, flow, and function in such a direct, qualitative, and quantitative manner has never before been possible. It is the expectation of the authors that this new technology, and its widespread application, will elevate the quality of care for these patients. This text is intended to enable more widespread use of real-time 3DE and hasten hoped-for improvements in care and outcome for patients of all ages with congenital heart disease.
