Trans-Thoracic Echocardiogram (TTE)

  • What is a Trans-Thoracic Echocardiogram (TTE)?

    A trans-thoracic echocardiogram (TTE) is a non-invasive, safe and painless diagnostic test that uses ultrasound (high frequency) waves to record images of the heart and its various structures, including the heart chambers and valves. The resulting images of the beating heart with blood circulating through it allow doctors to find any heart abnormalities and to assess the pumping function of the heart.

  • The results of the TTE will allow your doctor to find, evaluate and monitor any functional and structural abnormalities of your heart. These abnormalities may include tumours, fluid build-up around the heart, a hole in the heart, heart murmur, infection on or around the heart valves and damage to the heart muscle after a heart attack. It also allows your doctor to assess if your heart is pumping blood efficiently and if the valves are working normally.

    A TTE can also find congenital heart disease (heart disease present at birth) and can also be used to find the source of a blood clot that caused a stroke.
