Real-time 3-Dimensional Echocardiography for Assessment of Cardiac Function and Congenital Heart Disease (3DE-CHD)
The propose of this study is to generate normative data of the tree-dimensional echocardiographic(3-DE) measurements for cardiac structure and function in a large cohort of normal infants, children,and adolescents. The investigators also sought to investigate the utility of 3-DE in evaluating infants, children and adolescents with congenital and acquired heart diseases.
