          Abstract

          Transesophageal echocardiography is a new echocardio-graphic technique with indications that are still expanding and being redefined. Recently, the usefulness of transesophageal echocardiography in pulmonary embolism has been demonstrated in several case reports. In this article, we present 3 cases with pulmonary embolism diagnosed by transesophageal echocardiography and discuss its diagnostic value in this clinical setting.
