ECG and 2D echo_Poor acoustic window

My father is 64 years old. He went for ECG and 2D echo. Her ECG was normal and the 2D echo report suggested poor acoustic window.

When there is much tissue between the skin and the heart, it can be difficult to get good echo signals. If really needed, instead of an trans thoracic echo (TTE), they can do a trans esophagus echo (TEE).
With a TEE, the probe is inserted in the esophagus and will give much better images of the heart.
