3D TEE: How Is the Technology Transforming?

Listen to Dr. Mani Vannan of Piedmont Heart Institute in Atlanta for a discussion on 3D transesophageal echocardiography. It’s quick, just 12 minutes, and sure to make you want to take a closer look at 3D TEE.

You will learn how 3D TEE offers real-time imaging of heart structures for both anatomy and blood flow – visualizing valves and heart chambers, identifying valve diseases, mitral regurgitation jet placement, and improving measurements automatically.

Key Takeaways Include:

  • Viewing heart and dynamic blood flow in one view, real-time
  • Quantify volumes automatically, daily use
  • Aids in selection of interventional valve procedures
  • Mitral valve in 3D, a new rival to CT
  • Automatic quantification
