Transesophageal echocardiography

Transesophageal echocardiography: A transesophageal echocardiography is used to evaluate heart function using an ultrasound transducer attached to the end of an endoscope, which is 'swallowed' by the patient and positioned near the heart; the transesophageal method is more sensitive than the transthoracic method of echocardiography, in which the soundwaves have to penetrate the skin, bony thorax, and lungs.
