Cardiologists can obtain images of the interior structures of your heart using transesophageal echocardiography, in which a probe is passed into your esophagus. This procedure helps your doctor accurately diagnose your heart condition so they can plan the most appropriate treatment for you.
We may use TEE to better visualize certain conditions such as valve disorders, blood clots, masses inside your heart or the condition of replacement heart valves. We may combine it with ultrasound imaging to view the passage of blood through your heart.
