Abstract

The suprasternal and parasternal views are currently used for two-dimensional echocardiographic imaging of the patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) [1, 2]. In these views, however, the PDA cannot always be adequately shown. As an alternative, we developed a new approach for the two-dimensional echocardiographic imaging of the PDA from the subcostal view in newborns.
