The authors evaluated the accuracy of a semi-automated method of developing 3D images of mitral valve disease, generated from 3D echocardiograms, in clinical decision making.  Resulting images were very similar to images created through laborious analysis by hand of echo results, and were dissimilar to images of normal mitral valves.  The clinical utility of this technology will need to be assessed.
