Rendering Cardiac Volumes in Three and Four-Dimensional Ultrasonography
- Pp. 38-49 (12)Jimmy Espinoza
This chapter summarizes different approaches currently used to examine the fetal heart using three and four-dimensional ultrasonography with a particular emphasis on multiplanar display and novel rendering modalities. These new imaging modalities provide important insight into the normal and abnormal fetal cardiac anatomy and function and have the potential to reduce the operator dependency that characterizes twodimensional ultrasound.
