two-dimensional echocardiography

two-di·men·sion·al ech·o·car·di·og·ra·phy

echocardiography in which an image is reconstructed from the echoes stimulated and detected by a linear array or moving transducers.

two-dimensional echocardiography

Cross-sectional echocardiography Cardiology A common ultrasound-based diagnostic method in cardiology, which provides high-resolution, 'real time' images of the heart and great vessels; it is the noninvasive method of choice for diagnosing and managing congenital, pericardial, myocardial, cardiac valve disease; it is used to evaluate end-diastolic intraventricular dimensions, septal and free wall thickness and depressed ventricular function. See Transesophageal echocardiography.
