Transthoracic Echocardiography (TTE)
An Ultrasound of Your Heart
What Happens at a Transthoracic Echocardiography
Your technician will connect electrodes to your chest that allow us to monitor your heart rate and electrical activity.
Your ultrasound expert will have you move to different positions and inform you of breathing techniques that will allow them to get the best possible images of your heart. They will apply a special gel to your chest while capturing these images.
