Evaluation of the mitral valve requires appreciation of its complex geometry. To accurately guide surgical interventions and describe pathology, three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is an immense improvement over the cumbersome mental reconstruction required by two-dimensional approaches. Here we describe real-time, three-dimensional transthoracic techniques for assessing mitral regurgitation and mitral valve prolapse.
