This test involves the use of a specialised ultrasound probe that images the heart through the oesophagus. Because the probe is anatomically closer to the heart than probes that image through the chest wall it is able to take higher resolution images. This test often allows us to see some structures of the heart that we are unable to visualise with a standard transthoracic echocardiogram.
