TEE measurement is a method applied when the patient’s chest structure (lung disease, deformation etc.) does not give sufficient quality echocardiographic image or when it is required to see intra cardiac formations more closely for evaluation.
TEE is an endoscopic examination. The posterior neighborhood of the heart is accessed with a thin tube which is let down from mouth to esophagus (probe) and very clear detailed images are obtained.
Preparations before the procedure take 30 minutes. Its result is given just after the test.
