Diagnostic Testing


Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE)

For a Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE), the transducer is passed down the esophagus instead of being moved over the outside of the chest wall. TEE shows clearer pictures of your heart, because the transducer is located closer to the heart and because the lungs and bones of the chest wall do not interfere with the sound waves produced by the transducer. This test requires a sedative and an anesthetic applied to the throat to ease discomfort.
