Abstract

The right atrium (RA) is the most under-evaluated heart chamber in the clinical practice. Three-dimensional (3D) speckle-tracking echocardiography (STE) merges the benefits of 3D echocardiography and STE: volumetric and strain assessment of the RA can be performed at the same time from the same digitally acquired 3D echocardiographic dataset with a special equipment using a virtual 3D model of the RA. A diagnostic focused study is under way at the Second Department of Medicine and Cardiology Center, University of Szeged, Hungary to assess 3D-STE-derived RA variables in different patient populations, which serves as a substudy of Motion Analysis of the heart and Great vessels bY three-dimension Al speckle-tRacking echocardiography in Pathological cases (MAGYAR-Path) Study. The aim of the present review is to summarize these early results.
