Design of illustrations about the position of the ultrasound transducer and the orientation of the transducer plane in a ME-LAX (midesophageal-long-axis) view. This standard view in transesophageal echocardiography provides a view of the left atrium, left ventricle, mitral valve, left ventricular outflow tract, aortic valve, and ascending aorta.
Two images were created with the heart closed and the sound plane transparent, illustrating how the transducer must be positioned and oriented in order to achieve correct imaging with the ultrasound view. In the other images, the lower part of the heart was resected to allow correlation with real ultrasound images from a midesophageal-long-axis view.
