Trans Esophageal Echo

A transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) is a diagnostic test that uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to produces images of the heart. The results of a TEE differ from those of a typical echocardiogram because the heart is accessed through the esophagus, an organ very near the upper chambers of the heart, rather than through the chest. Because of the proximity of the transducer to the heart, the ultrasound images produced by a TEE are extremely clear, showing details not otherwise visible.
