Three big trends were seen in cardiovascular ultrasound during the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) 2012 meeting. Malissa Wood, M.D., co-director of the Women's Center at Mass General Hospital, Boston, and chair of the ASE Public Relations Committee, explains these trends. The biggest is the expanding use of ultrasound and transesophageal echo (TEE) in the cath lab and hybrid OR for structural heart procedural navigation. Other trends include use of pocket ultrasound and new software advances to simlify and reduce the time it takes to use 3-D echo and make quantifications.
