Abstract

Rotational scanning from the subxiphoid position is an image acquisition technique used for reconstruction of dynamic three-dimensional echocardiographic images in infants and small children. The orientation of the heart within the three-dimensional data set is variable and dependent on the image plane at which rotational scanning was initiated. We describe an image acquisition technique that standardizes the orientation of the heart within the three-dimensional data set, thereby permitting a systematic approach to the reconstruction of three-dimensional renderings. Thirteen infants and small children with congenital heart disease were studied by this approach. Illustrative examples are provided. The average time required to derive a three-dimensional rendering was 37 +/- 9 minutes. We conclude that subxiphoid rotational scanning by a systematic approach to image acquisition and reconstruction can be applied successfully to the derivation of three-dimensional renderings of congenital cardiac defects.
