The role of ultrasound in surgery is also expected to grow, particularly with the use of 3D visualization. One procedure that could be enhanced through these techniques, according to McElroy, will be mitral valve replacement.

“Device manufacturers are working to make these devices more visible through ultrasound, making it more and more of a tool in procedures, such as for guiding structural heart repair,” he said. “A major benefit to that is the reduction in the amount of radiation that a patient would receive under fluoroscopy.”
