Abstract

Because of the complicated anatomy displayed by two-dimensional imaging of the heart, and the need to easily understand the image orientation, it is important that standard nomenclature and image orientations be adopted. The Committee believes that by adopting nomenclature and image orientation standards, the technique of two-dimensional imaging of the heart will be advanced and communication between laboratories will be improved. In addition, these standards should be helpful to those who are seeing two-dimensional images of the heart for the first time.
