Paper Abstract

Two-dimensional real time systems have been introduced recently as one of the most significant steps forward in the enlargement of the diagnostic power of ultrasound systems, particularly in cardiology. Although very powerful, especially in the immediate qualitative assessment of cardiac size, geometry, and dynamic behaviour, the present systems as yet have not met the image requirements necessary for easy qualitative analysis. It seems certain that at a future stage research will enable improvement of present day images. The problem areas that remain unsolved are mainly a result of physical limitations.
