Since sound waves travel poorly through bone, lung and thick chest walls, ultrasonic examination may be difficult in certain people. These patients may have a Tran esophageal echocardiogram (TEE), which uses a special probe passed into the esophagus so that an ultrasonic picture of the heart can be obtained without interference from the lungs or ribcage.
This is a procedure to examine blood flow to the heart and test how well the heart is pumping. A thin plastic tube (catheter) is inserted into an artery in the arm or leg. From there, it is advanced into the chambers of the heart or into the coronary arteries.
