Intracardiac Ultrasound

Research output: Chapter/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


Intracardiac ultrasound (ICE) was introduced as a substitute for transoesophageal echocardiography (TEE) to guide percutaneous interventions like transseptal punctures, patent foramen ovale and atrial-septum defects closures, left atrial appendage closures, and alcohol ablations for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Several manufacturers introduced systems with catheters either with a rotating probe or with phased array probes. This chapter provides a comparison of ICE with TEE. Example images of both ultrasound systems show the visualization of the heart structures by rotational and phased array systems with different catheter positions. Several case examples in 2D and real-time 3D imaging give an impression of the practical use of ICE.
