Real time 3-D echocardiography for quantitation of the left ventricle. Care was taken to encompass the entire LV cavity in the data set by checking LV views from 2-D multiplane display and 3-D LV transversal plane (upper panel). After the 3-D acquisition, 9-slice display mode was used to ensure optimal imaging of the entire LV endocardium at each short-axis level and lack of stitching artifacts (lower panel).
