We have created this interactive application to assist with teaching and learning the assessment of cardiac function with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). The primary challenge in learning TEE is translating the two dimensional echocardiographic image into a visualization of the three-dimensional (3D) structure of the heart. Users can view the TTE recordings for each of the 20 standard views used in a full cardiology exam and see the corresponding 3D model of the probe, ultrasound plane, heart and rib cage for that view.
Each TTE view can be selected from a menu at the left of the screen, or by using arrow buttons to go to the next or previous view in the list. For each TTE view, the 3D model of the probe, ultrasound plane, heart and rib cage can be rotated in the horizontal or vertical plane to view it from any angle.
The rib cage can be removed, the part of the heart above the echo plane can be removed, and the heart model can be oriented so the structures correspond to the TTE image.

just what the dr ordered
I am thrilled with the simple yet profoundly complex program you have created for understanding u/s anatomy. Traditional sagital and coronal imagery is easy to understand and follow. I find, as a novice to detailed cardiac echo (for point of care use) that I am wrestling with the image when it isn't exactly what I'm used to for the classic views. Your program takes the guess work out of this. Reviewing your images in 3-d, and being able to manipulate the image also in 3-d is building the database in my brain to help me process the image I am seeing to get to what I want, as well to pick up pathology that I have been missing as I just wasn't sure what i was seeing at times. Well done. Do you guys have a diagnostic app as well-for evaluating function?
Not your fault, but...
Can you please update the app so that it works with the new iPad iOS? Would be happy to give back your five star rating. It’s a great app, but does not even open after the last iOS update. ☹️
This app has a lot to offer. I highly suggest this app to anyone in Cardiac ultrasound. It really helps understand what in the world you are looking at, and how you got there. Do yourself a favor and take the tutorial. It will be well worth the time you spend on it. I use this about 30 min a week and it saves me hours of frustration.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
