Trans-Thoracic Echocardiography: Sensitivity and Specificity

Introduction: None written. Excerpt from the entry in Infective Endocarditis:
Vegetation seen on TTE. However, sensitivity is ~96% if abnormal valvular function is the criterion, i.e. the sensitivity of an abnormal TTE is virtually as good as TEE (though specificity obviously would be lower in that case).
