Assessment of RV function by 3D echo

Assessment of RV function by 3D echo

Assessment of RV function by 3D echo has several advantages in that it is quantitative, can assesses the global right ventricular function, can assess both right ventricular inflow and outflow, there are no geometric limitations, it is reproducible and has a close correlation with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). But the limitations are the lower availability, image quality, a steep learning curve, load dependence and regional function.
