Paper Abstract

Edler and Hertz, in 1954, reported the first application of pulsed echo ultrasound to cardiac examinations. Since then, many studies have indicated the clinical usefulness of this technique establishing echocardiography as a valuable non-invasive procedure for the assessment of many cardiac abnormalities. Current clinical methods of echocardiography revolve about the utilization of A and T-M display mode ultrasound systems. These systems, although permitting visualization of cardiac motion, provide only one-dimensional echo information about the structures under investigation so that spatial geometries must be reconstructed mentally from a series of one-dimensional sonic interrogations.
