Latest Version of Echocardiography Provides Improved Pictures of the Heart
Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a recent progress in echocardiography providing doctors with improved imaging of the heart. This procedure entails the insertion of a probe into the esophagus, which emits radio waves. These waves, bounce off the heart and help in enabling a motion picture of the heart, far clearer than a conventional echocardiogram.
