From: Three-dimensional echocardiography using single-heartbeat modality decreases variability in measuring left ventricular volumes and function in comparison to four-beat technique in atrial fibrillation

Figure 1

(A) Four-beat ECG-gated full volume three-dimensional loop presented in 9-slice of the left ventricular (from apex to base). Note the stitching artifacts due to irregular heart rate in all 9-slices in an atrial fibrillation patient (marked with arrows). (B) Single-beat three dimensional echocardiography presented in 9-slice. No stitching artifacts can be detected in a patient having atrial fibrillation.
