TRANSTHORACIC ECHOCARDIOGRAM – Cardiac Ultrasound

What is this test?

An echocardiogram is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen on a video screen.

Transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) is the most common type. Views of the heart are obtained by moving the transducer to different locations on your chest or abdominal wall.
