Fetal Echocardiography – Advanced STIC Techniques

Spatio-temporal image correlation (STIC) was introduced in 2006 as a robust solution to problems that  doctors face while performing fetal echocardiography in 2D scan, which is the gold standard method of obtaining the needed diagnostic planes, to screen/diagnose fetal cardiac anomalies, using 3D dataset with a single sweep of a volumetric probe.

In this HD p720 video lecture you will learn (click here to download full lecture):

  1. What is STIC?
  2. What is Volume Dataset.
  3. Why we need STIC.
  4. 4D display modes.
    • Multiplanar Mode.
    • Surface Mode.
    • Inversion Mode.
    • Glass-body Mode.
    • Tomographic Ultrasound Imaging (TUI).
    • B-flow Mode.
    • Color and Power Doppler Flow Mapping.
    • Omni-view Navigation (VCI-C).
    • STIC-M Mode.
  5. Prerequisites of the scan.
  6. Cardiac information acquired.
    • Study of The Cardiac Anatomy.
      1. The cardiac chambers.
      2. The outflow tracts.
      3. The valves.
      4. Course of the great vessels.
      5. Study of the atrio-ventricular septum and foramen ovale.
    • Physiological ┬áHeart Assessment.
      1. Functional assessment of the atrial and ventricular system.
      2. Functional assessment of the valves.
      3. Flowmetric assessment.
