All 16 LV segments are imaged using both TG SAX and ME views. The TG SAX views image the LV at different TG levels (basal, mid papillary and apex) by advancing and withdrawing the probe in the stomach. Compare the TG and ME LV views for global and regional wall motion abnormalities. Avoid foreshortening the ME LV views by retroflexing the probe tip.
