A number of groups around the world are working in the field of three dimensional(3D) ultrasound (US) in order to obtain higher quality diagnostic information. 3D US, in general, involves collecting a sequence of conventional 2D US images along with information on the position and orientation of each image plane. A transformation matrix is calculated relating image space to real world space. This allows image pixels and region of interest (ROI) points drawn on the image to be displayed in 3D. The 3D data can be used for the production of volume or surface rendered images, or for the direct calculation of ROI volumes.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
