12] [13] Steering the imaging plane using the pressure-sensitive switch is the third maneuver to obtain different tomographic views. The ability to image cardiac structures from 0 to 180 degrees not only enhances understanding of cardiac anatomy but also provides a ready means for three-dimensional reconstruction. [14] [15] The fourth maneuver involves manipulation of the anterior-posterior and right-left flexion control knobs. [10] [13] The versatility of multiplane TEE provides an almost infinite number of imaging planes.

The transducer will need to be withdrawn slightly to image the arch vessels, which course superiorly. In one third of patients, all three arch vessels can be imaged, but in the other two thirds of patients, only the two distal arch vessels can be imaged. It is rare not to be able to image at least one arch vessel. As a rule, the brachiocephalic artery, which is anterior and more rightward, is the most difficult to image because of the interposing trachea. The transverse plane in a more superior location may sometimes show the three arch vessels in their short axis.
