The ability to present and assess cardiac morphology, pathology and function in three dimensions represents a major technologic advance in the field of echocardiography. Three-dimensional echocardiography is very useful in assessing complex pathology. Additionally, three-dimensional echocardiography has emerged as an indispensable tool for the planning and guiding of surgical and catheter based mitral procedures.
