TRANS ESOPHAGEAL ECHO
TEE is a test that uses sound waves to create high-quality moving pictures of the heart and its blood vessels.TEE is a type of echocardiography (echo) which shows the size and shape of the heart and how well the heart chambers and valves are working. Echo can pinpoint areas of the heart muscle that aren't contracting well because of poor blood flow or injury from a previous heart attack. Echo also can detect possible blood clots inside the heart, fluid buildup in the pericardium (the sac around the heart), and problems with the aorta. The aorta is the main artery that carries oxygen-rich blood from your heart to your body.
