Paper Abstract

Trans-Esophageal Echocardiographic probes were introduced around 1982. The development ranges over the years from single plane, phased array transducers at low frequency to today's multiplane probes with a large number of elements. Further miniaturization and higher frequencies allow paediatric applications. Recent development includes a probe with 48 elements at 7 MHz with a shaft diameter of only 5 mm.
