Transesophageal Echocardiography


Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a diagnostic procedure that utilizes high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to create detailed images of the heart and its structures. It involves the insertion of a specialized probe into the esophagus, which allows for a closer and clearer view of the heart compared to a standard echocardiogram performed on the chest.
