Abstract

Real time three dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (RT3DE) is rapidly emerging as the imaging modality of choice for assessment of atrial septal defects. This novel imaging modality provides incremental information about the morphology of atrial septal defects (ASD), allowing precise characterization of septal defects. Our case highlights the limitations of conventional echo imaging and the advantages of RT3DE in planning percutaneous ASD closure.
