    Ten hearts were cut in planes to simulate echocardiographic cuts which may be taken to visualise the anatomy of the cardiac chambers and great arteries. The various myocardial wall segments were named from these sections by referring to their position in the reconstituted heart. The sections were studied in their correct anatomical position. In this way they provide a reference for appropriate orientation of echocardiographic images.
