Figure 8 : 

Three-dimensional echocardiographic assessment of the right ventricle. Planimetry of the contours of the right ventricle in a multiplanar reformatted view permits generation of a 3D representation of the right ventricle. This computes the right ventricular end-diastolic volume, end-systolic volume and ejection fraction. The grey regions on the model represent the tricuspid valve and pulmonary valve. PA: pulmonary artery; TV: tricuspid valve.
