An acoustic window is the location from which
an ultrasound probe makes it's scan. The probe
can be turned and/or angled in different directions
yielding a different view, but all of the views
are from the same acoustic window or perspective.
The acoustic windows, in echocardiography, are
divided by the scan type, transthoracic or transesophageal.
The acoustic windows in a transesophageal scan are:
- Upper Esophageal (UE)
- Mid-esophageal (ME)
- Transgastric (TG)
- Deep Transgastric (DTG)
The acoustic windows in a transthoracic scan are:
- Supraclavicular (SC)
- Parasternal (PS)
- Substernal (SS)
- Apical (AP)
