In these diagrams, the authors explain the rationale for the different echocardiographic views using simple drawings. Understanding the position of the probe relative to the heart in the different views will hopefully make it easier for the reader to reconstruct the view in their mind. Also, the analogous transesophageal or transthoracic view is presented, with the intent of making the views from each approach easier to memorize and recall.
