A heartfelt thanks to a TEE simulator for physician training
Transoesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a minimally invasive procedure used to assess the structure and function of the heart. Unlike a standard echocardiogram, the echo transducer is attached to a thin tube that is passed through the mouth into the oesophagus to yield very clear images of the heart. Despite its minimal invasiveness, TEE requires a highly skilled operator with detailed anatomical and clinical knowledge of the heart. Patient discomfort is not uncommon. TEEMothyTS Simulator has developed a cost-effective simulator to enhance training and effective use while minimising patient discomfort. The solution can use CT data from real patients with numerous pathologies for a broad repertoire of realistic medical situations. Its commercialisation should benefit physicians and patients alike.
