Bi-plane Imaging: Is there really a more useful 3D modality?


1. Illustrate use of bi-plane imaging to speed up screening exam, structure evaluation of valve lesions and localization of other anomalies

  • Screening exam with biplane
  • MV assessment (from BiComm)
  • AV assessment (e.g. pre and post repair)
  • VSD
  • PVL post replacement

2. Review evidence on benefits of bi-plane imaging (e.g: )

3. What makes Bi-plane Imaging so useful? Easy to understand and orient, familiar 2D images, simple familiar knobology, sharper images

4. Limitation of Bi-plane.
