Não sei de vocês mas eu estou juntando uns trocados para comprar um Eco 3D logo que ficar mais em conta.
É inevitável a mudança, não adianta o Morcerf dizer que o 3D está na cabeça do ecocardiografista!
Veja o que os europeus pensam a respeito:
In conclusion, going from 2D to 3D is more important for the improvement of image interpretation and quantification of certain parameters than the modality which is used and rather than considering which is better, echocardiography and CMR should learn from each other's strengths and weaknesses. In clinical practice echocardiography is the technique of first choice for a lot of indications, but in case of suboptimal image quality one should not hesitate to move to CMR. Further developments in image processing and analysis should focus on finite element models which can be applied to different imaging modalities and which can provide the common platform for image fusion and comparative interpretation.
