Transesophageal Echocardiography (TEE)
TEE is a specialised ultrasound technique used to visualise the heart from the esophagus. It allows detailed visualisation of the structures of the heart and great vessels. It is also used to examine the structure of the heart and its blood flow. TEE is especially useful in patients whose Transthoraic echo (TTE) images are not optimal and when there is increased clinical suspicion of certain conditions.
A flexible probe mounted with a transducer is passed through the mouth down the esophagus. Pictures of superb clarity can then be obtained this way.
