If you are a cardiologist in practice, a fellow in training, an echo technologist, or a cardiac anesthesiologist, then this is the right place to help you learn and review principles of echocardiography.
Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is the most commonly performed cardiac ultrasound examination. A high quality transthoracic echocardiogram can be performed quickly at the bedside and has the potential to comprehensively evaluate left and right ventricular systolic and diastolic function, regional wall motion, valvular heart disease, and diseases of the pericardium.
