Abstract
This section deals with areas of great cur-rent interest. Ultrasound provides an excellent framework for observing the interaction of users and developers of technical advances. The major medical uses of ultrasound have appeared within the last 20 years, with exponential growth in the last five to seven years. This paper reviews in a broad sense current applications of ultrasound for cardiac imaging. It will attempt to highlight the need for the amazing devices described in the papers that follow and will mention some areas that await further major advances.
