VIRTUAL TTE website
We have developed two interactive modules for teaching transthoracic ultrasound and learning the sonoanatomy of the normal heart. The TTE FOCUS Views module covers the 5 views used in a FOCUS assessment, while the TTE Standard Views covers the 20 standard views used in a complete cardiology exam.
Focused Cardiac Ultrasound (FOCUS) is the process of carrying out a rapid qualitative assessment of cardiac function by practitioners in anesthesia, critical care and emergency medicine. This module helps trainees learn the sonoanatomy of the 5 TTE views that are used in this assessment.
TTE Standard Views
The TTE Standard Views module is intended to assist with teaching and learning the assessment of cardiac function with transthoracic echocardiography. Users can view the TTE recordings for each of the 20 standard views used in a complete cardiology exam and see the corresponding 3D model of the probe, ultrasound plane, heart and rib cage for that view.
