Strengthening Cardiac Care Through Innovative Technology

Case Study

Kansas Heart Hospital Improves Patient Outcomes with 3D Transesophageal Echocardiography

Echocardiography is a key assessment tool for the evaluation of cardiac structure and function. The ability to image cardiac structures using 3D transesophageal echocardiography
(TEE) has rapidly become routine in the evaluation of patients with a valve disease.

The heart experts at Kansas Heart Hospital, located in Wichita, Kansas, annually perform more than 2,500 heart catheterization procedures, 350 open heart surgeries and 100 aortic valve surgeries, plus many more advanced heart procedures.
