About this book

Introduction

Over the last 30 years the technological advances in transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) have been exponential and have been reflected by its increasing utilization. Currently almost all echocardiography labs will undertake the modality and the vast majority of valve operations are performed with TEE guidance. The spatial and temporal resolution of TEE is unsurpassed and it is relatively easy to get good images with minimal training.

Transesophageal Echocardiography in Clinical Practice provides pragmatic guidance to those undertaking training in TEE. It is not an exhaustive text to be used for reference but one that should be used in conjunction with hands-on experience and, if used correctly, this combination will help the reader understand the true potential of TEE.
