A 3-D view on the Echopixel system of a MitraClip implantation showing one clip deployed and a second about to be deployed. The images can be rotated on any axis and sliced through to show cross sectional views of the anatomy and the device in true 3-D with glasses. Echopixel is working toward a system that uses a special screen that will eliminate the need for glasses.
