Guidelines for Performing a Comprehensive Transesophageal Echocardiography Examination: Recommendations from the American Society of Echocardiography and the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists

This document presents the 28 views in a comprehensive TEE examination. A suggested protocol of image acquisition is provided, with the caveat that anatomic variability may require unconventional imaging planes be used. Although the performance of a comprehensive TEE examination is recommended whenever possible, individual patient characteristics, anatomic variations, pathologic features, or time constraints imposed may limit the ability to perform all aspects of the examination described in this document. The ‘‘Specific Structural Imaging’’ section of this document includes additional views that can be obtained. The document is not intended to review specific indications for TEE or cover extensively abnormalities seen with this modality
