TEE Views

  • Annette Vegas


  • The original standard 20 TEE views that comprise a comprehensive TEE exam as described by the SCA/ASE (1999) have been augmented by 8 additional views.

  • Conveniently, all views can be grouped together by the probe level in the esophagus and the structures being interrogated as diagrammed here:
    • Yellow: mid-esophageal (ME) views that examine the LV and MV

    • Green: ME views that examine the AV, TV, bicaval, and pulmonary veins

    • Blue: ME and upper-esophageal (UE) views for different regions of the aorta

    • Orange: transgastric (TG) views that examine the LV, RV, and AV with good spectral and tissue Doppler alignment
