Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE)

What is a Transesophageal echocardiogram? 

        A Transesophageal echocardiogram TEE provides detailed images of your heart structure and valves. Unlike a standard echocardiogram, where the echo transducer is placed upon your chest, a TEE involves attaching the transducer onto a thin tube that then passes through your mouth and down into your esophagus. Because the esophagus is very close to the heart, a TEE allows for clear and detailed images of your heart.
