Abstract--Among screening modalities, echocardiography is the fastest, least expensive and least invasive
method for imaging the heart. A new generation of three-dimensional (3-D) ultrasound (US) technology has been
developed with real-time 3-D (RT3-D) matrix phased-array transducers. These transducers allow interactive 3-D
