What does a "TTE W/DOPPLER, COMPLETE" entail?

I had an echocardiogram performed, and the bill came back as "TTE W/DOPPLER, COMPLETE". I have found information on the internet indicating that doppler involves sticking a probe down the esophagus during the test. But this was not done, it was just the standard moving probes around my chest as I lay there.

Please clarify. Thank you.

Hi
Welcome to Just Answer
TTE W/DOPPLER means Trans Thoracic Echocardiography with Doppler.

Doppler can be done by the echo machine --- and echo (and hence doppler) can be done both via Transthoracic way as well as Tranesophageal route.

 

I hope this clarifies and answers your question.

Kindest Regards XXXXX XXXXX luck.
