Three-dimensional echo (3D-Echo) technology has been under development in the world for IO years, and great progress has been made in both echographic equipment and personal computers. The principles of 3D-Echo have not changed, but now three-dimensional calculation has become practical. Current 3D-Echo systems have the following merits, and also demerits which must be improved. Merits 1. Wide area of view 2. Solid form 3. Feasibility of volume and weight measurements Demerits 1. No real-time
