Transesophageal echocardiography

A diagnostic test that analyzes sound waves bounced off the heart. The sound waves are sent through a tube like device inserted in the mouth and passed down the esophagus (food pipe), which ends near the heart. This technique is useful in studying patients whose heart and vessels, for various reasons, are difficult to assess with standard echocardiography.
