TTE : Transthoracic Echocardiogram

Transthoracic Echocardiogram TTE

A transthoracic echo TTE is a clinical tool to evaluate the structure and function of the heart.

All four chambers and all four valves can be assessed by TTE. Other visible structures on TTE include the aorta, the pericardium, pleural effusions, ascites, and inferior vena cava.

The portable ultrasound scanner SIFULTRAS-5.34 can be used to detect a heart attack, enlargement/hypertrophy of the heart and infiltration of the heart from an abnormal substance (eg amyloidosis).

Moreover, the ultrasound device can detect weakness of the heart, cardiac tumors and a variety of other findings can be diagnosed with a TTE.

With advanced measurements of the movement of the tissue with time SIFULTRAS-5.34, it can measure diastolic function, fluid status, and ventricular dyssynchrony.

Plus, the probe helps physicians assess the overall function of your heart, determine the presence of many types of heart disease and to follow the progress of heart valve disease over time.

Consequently, to evaluate the effectiveness of medical or surgical treatments The SIFULTRAS-5.34 comes into the picture, as the doctor’s third eye.

Not only to aid them estimate the amount of blood pumped out of the left ventricle with each heartbeat, evaluate heart size and heart valve function but also to identify areas of poor blood flow in the heart and areas of heart muscle that are not contracting normally.

Further, to examine previous injury to the heart muscle caused by impaired blood flow or evidence of congestive heart failure as well.
