Sample text

The piezoelectric elements are simultaneously active and arranged in a grid fashion. A large number of digital channels are required to connect the fully sampled elements. To avoid excessive power consumption and a wide transducer cable, several small circuits are incorporated into the transducer to allow partial beam forming in the probe. While the transducer is maintained in fixed orientation, the ultrasonic beam can steer automatically in multiple directions. This beam steering and signal processing take place automatically in the scanning probe itself.

Potential clinical applications where 3D echocardiography may be routinely performed are dyssynchrony assessment, strain imaging, and evaluation of prosthetic valves. Today, low spatial and temporal resolution of larger volumes remain as limitations. Obtaining a real-time single-heartbeat-full volume dataset with high spatial and temporal resolution and live 3D color Doppler of wide angle should be feasible in the future and will increase utility and efficiency of 3D echocardiography. 1 Ultrasound contrast agents The ultrasound contrast agents are acoustically active microbubbles consisting of an outer phospholipid or albumin shell encapsulating an inner high-molecular-weight gas.

Due to these facts, there are normal differences in TDI velocities and displacement, with both velocity and displacement increasing from apex to base. Interpretation of regional TDI velocities is often difficult since the distinction of pathology from normal variation may be challenging. Ultrasound/echocardiography35 Load dependency TDI velocities are load dependent. When TDI is used for assessment of regional function however, this limitation is less important since regional differences persists with changes in load.
