In these diagrams, the authors explain the rationale for the different echocardiographic views using simple drawings.

Also, the analogous transesophageal or transthoracic view is presented, with the intent of making the views from each approach easier to memorize and recall.<div><b>Images:</b><br><div>Glossary of TTE and TEE (TOE) Abbreviations.<br></div></div><div><i>TTE-Views1</i> Transthoracic Echocardiography Views: Parasternal and Apical Windows</div><div><i>TTE-Views2</i> Transthoracic Echocardiography Views: Apical, Subcostal, Right Parasternal, and Suprasternal Windows</div><div><i>TEE-Views1</i> Transesophageal Echocardiography Views: Midesophageal and Transgastric Windows</div><div><i>TEE-Views2</i> Transesophageal Echocardiography Views: Transgastric Window and Midesophageal Aortic Views</div>
