Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a test that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the heart. It provides more detail that a standard echocardiogram. Vanderbilt researchers have created a software that creates an easy to follow, step-by-step procedure for a transesophageal echocardiography exam.
The pECHO application assists echocardiographers in performing a TEE exam. It creates a step-by-step procedure to follow to ensure the exam is performed safely and correctly. Each exam can be logged so that the user can review previous cases. The application also allows the user to perform calculations and review recommendations based on examinations of the cardiac system.
