Ultrasound Transesophageal echo (TEE)

This channel includes news and new technology innovations for transesophageal echo (TEE) imaging used for diagnostics and procedural guidance. TEE is an invasive form cardiac ultrasound (echo), where the ultrasound probe is placed down the patient's throat, into the esophagus to allow for more detailed, clearer imaging of the heart than is available using typical transthoracic echo imaging. TEE is used extensively for transcatheter structural heart procedure guidance because of its ability to show soft tissue that is not visible on the angiography systems typically used in the cath lab.
