Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE) in Hyderabad

Q: What is a TEE?

Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) uses the same sound wave technology that a regular echocardiogram uses but the pictures are taken by inserting a special probe into the esophagus (the food tube that connects the mouth with the stomach) rather than by placing it on the patient’s chest wall. An overnight fasting is required for this test.
