Analyzing the left ventricle using 3D echocardiography
3D analysis of the left ventricle requires four steps: finding the anatomical landmarks, segmenting images into 2D views, marking endocardial borders and generating a 3D ventricle model. In this lesson, our expert explains 3D echo overcomes 2D echo measurement limitations in the case of cardiac remodeling.
Measuring right ventricular volume and function using 3D echocardiography
With 2D echo, we can assess right ventricular function using measurements like the tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE) or fractional area change (FAC). In this video, you will find out how the right ventricular function assessment can be even more accurate with 3D echo.
Assessing the left atrium using 3D echocardiography
The left atrium size is a meaningful prognostic marker for cerebral or cardiovascular disease. In this video, we’ll cover measuring atrial volume with 3D echo and the assessment of intracardiac masses.
Evaluating the aortic valve using 3D echocardiography
3D echo allows you to evaluate the cusp morphology and function in the aortic valve, which hasn’t been possible with 2D echo. In this video, you’ll learn when to use the X plane mode for valve assessment and how 3D echo helps diagnose congenital valve malformations.
How to decontaminate your ultrasound device after imaging COVID-19 patients
In this video, you'll learn a systematic method for cleaning your ultrasound device that will keep you and your patients safe from COVID-19.
How to assess the right ventricle in COVID-19 patients using echocardiography
In this video, from our COVID Mini: Handheld Echocardiography course, we'll look at how to assess the right ventricle using handheld echo as well as the important signs to look for in patients with COVID-19 who are at risk of developing a pulmonary embolism.
How to assess the left ventricle in COVID-19 patients using echocardiography
In this video, we'll take a look at how to assess the left ventricle as part of a handheld echocardiography study.
