A transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) is a diagnostic procedure that uses echocardiography to assess the heart's function and structures. The TEE procedure provides a more detailed image because the esophagus is immediately behind the heart, and the sound waves do not have to pass through skin, muscle, or bone tissue.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
