What to Expect

TEE involves passing a special ultrasound scope through your mouth into your esophagus and close to the heart to take images. This test gives your physician more detailed answers of your heart function.

Preparation

You should not eat or drink 4-6 hours prior to the procedure. Your physician will go over the results after the test has been completed.

Time

This test would be scheduled as an outpatient procedure at the hospital and takes approximately 30-45 minutes.
